Red rash on right arm in 2 year old, Sunburn?

My 2 yr old that will be 3 next month has a red sunburn like rash on his right arm . It appears to be a sunburn, but it only appears on the one arm. We did go outside to play today for about an hour. There isn t any bite marks to make me think it could be a possible bug bite . What should I look for or should I have concerns? Thanks!
