Why does the Torah add the word "al M'kom Dam ha'Asham"?


Rashi #1: To teach us that he must place the oil on the location of the blood even if the blood has been wiped off, 1 since it is not the blood that counts, but the location.


Rashi #2 (in Zevachim, 43a): To teach us that if the Kohen places the oil without having first placed the blood, it is invalid.


The question remains however, why the Torah did not teach this Chidush above (in Pasuk 17) in connection with the Metzora Ashir?
