There are two types: Herpes comes in two viruses. One is type one (used to be called simplex or 'oral' herpes) and type two (used to be called 'genital' herpes). You only get herpes in one location. The same infection does not move or migrate. It sure sounds like you also have herpes type one. I would advise a blood test to prove or disprove this.
