Please advise what is the difference between herpes type 1 type 2 and herpes gladiatorum?

Herpes. Classically, hsv-1 refers to herpes of the oral region (cold sores). Hsv-2 refers to herpes of the genital region. Herpes gladiatorum refers to when hsv-1 is spread to the neck, face, or arms. This usually occurs in athletes who have close contact with one another, such as wrestlers (hence the "gladiatorum").
