Maybe not herpes: Most genital herpes due to HSV1 does not recur, or only infrequently. And herpes is uncommon in the buttocks crease; can occur, but unusual. Most likely the butt crease problem is something other than herpes. See a doctor during an outbreak so it can be tested for HSV, then you'll know for sure. Good luck!
