HSV-1 in genital region. First outbreak was on vagina, since then I only get them essentially at the top of the crease of my buttocks. Has it moved?

In brief: 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!
