Could be expressing: ....through different cutaneous nerve distributions but not necessarily because it's "MOVING UP" This is not "flesh eating bacteria or venom from a snake bite that slowly disperses. Once a person has HSV you can consider your entire milieu as harboring viral particles. Where they decide to express themselves is variable. You may've been innoculated anywhere FIRST.. See your doctor for evaluation.
