Can herpes create sores on the scalp>

Is it possible that scalp sores that have puss and crust over are signs of the herpes virus? I have been diagnosed with genital herpes and I have been trying to think if I had prior signs of the virus and the only thing that I can think of was the two sores that were on my scalp a couple of months prior to the out break. One at the top of my scalp and one at the back.

usually sores on the scalp aren't due to herpes.

what testing did you have for genital herpes?

Grace, are you a nurse or doctor? How do you know sores on the scalp are not herpes?
