History of sore above lip. Can it reappear on nose?

I ve been reading up on HSV1 and HSV2. I find it interesting that the virus stays in a nerve near your ear for 1 and spinal chord area for 2. In HSV1 it was saying that the virus can go to the lips , nose , or eye area as well as sinuses etc... My question is when I was a teenager I had a sore above my lip on my right side. I ve never seen it again. I was under the impression that if it were to come back it would be the same locatoin. So, if it comes back it could come to my nose instead? Same question for HSV2, if I had a small slit in one location and it came back could it be another location? thanks
