They can definitely move to a different place, as long as both places are in the same section of your nervous system. So if you had an outbreak on your face, an outbreak on your lip is not unusual.

Herpes will never move by itself to totally different part of the body, so you don't have to worry about it spreading to your genitals, for example.

Herpes can do all sorts of things, but what you described sounds pretty normal. The one thing you can be sure about is that it's likely to get milder, smaller and better over time.

I think I read that you have oral HSV-2. How was that diagnosed? Were you swabbed and tested?

Totally normal.

My facial obs generally are on my chin but during a really bad flare up can also include my bottom lip and Ive had ral herpes since I was a little kid.

      I believe it’s type 2 but apparently either strain can be found either end! So I will hopefully clarify all this in the coming week!

      @WilsoInAus https://forums.herpesopportunity.com/topic/8577-unprotected-sex-and-transmission-of-hsv2-with-no-symptoms/ Here they say we can shed the hsv2 virus up to 35% of the time. We are far from the 4% transmission rate. That rate is not for everyone. So if i always have prodome and i shed more than others my transmission rate is a lot higher than just 4% so please stop spreading false information.

      Unsure whether this is something to be worried about or not. Coming up to 3 weeks now. I’ve been to a sexual health clinic and they said there’s nothing to worry about. I haven’t had sex in 6 months I’ve also never done it without a comdom. There is no fluid in them even when I’ve tried to squeeze them. There’s also 2 of them near my belly button
