Dr. Mary Zozulin answered:

Herpes started on penis 8 years ago I get 1 a month. Moved to anus 5 years ago. Now moved to below buttocks, and red streak in groin nodes. Why does it keep moving to different parts of body.

Virus spreads

Body
Heroes or HSV comes in type 1 & 2. Type 1 is less virulent less spread and typically a single reoccurring blister. Type 2 more likely spreads and has several blisters. To avoid either type from spreading or infecting partner should take antiviral (valtrex or acyclovir) if having blisters more than 3 times a year should stay on the meds daily for suppression a year or two so gets immunity

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

How can you get herpes?

From herpes viruses

Cold_sore
A person can get herpes from another person's fresh herpes sores. The other person may have sores on his or her genitals, lips, fingers, etc..., and transmit viruses by touching the uninfected person. Sometimes, infected persons can transmit herpes even when they don't have visible fresh herpes sores, so prevention is not always possible. Most adults have had oral herpes, as it is so common.
