Red round raw spot near elbow, burning sensation. What could it be?

Are you there? Okay, I woke up with a round red raw spot near my elbow . I am 57 and have burned myself in the past so I would describe this as a burn.....but I haven t burned myself, so I think it may be something else. I is round, a little smaller than a quarter, raw like a burn, and feels like a burn. I don t know yet if it is growing. I am in the sun a lot in Arizona, but this is an area that does not get much sun. I looked at pictures of ringworm and it doesn t look like that. Any ideas?
