I have genital herpes and instead of having the outbreaks on my genitals, I usually get them on my right upper thigh. Also, when I do have an outbreak, I am extremely tired and feel very weak, is this normal? Thank you, Sue A herpes outbreak cannot be considered normal, but so far as your description goes, a herpetic infection might be expected to manifest itself in the ways you have described.
All of the conditions you have listed may be expected from a herpes recurrence.
Microorganisms, including viruses do not become immune.
They can become resistant to a variety of anti-microbial substances used to treat the infections they cause.
For the past few months though, we have both had pretty severe breakouts with bumps, severe itching, etc., brought on originally I think, by an off-brand clothes detergent we had never used before. From the brief description of your situation, some factor has entered the situation that has not been there for the relatively uneventful period of your marriage.
Re-inoculation is possible, but more likely some other inciting variable is active now.
A clinical examination and conference with your health care provider hopefully should give you the direct guidance needed.

If the two of you have not participated sexually with any others, the likelihood of another virus strain in the scenario is nil.
See your health care provider who put you on acyclovir in order to discuss the way your treatment has gone.
