herpes on my face... am I the only one?

I am so happy to come across this site. About two years ago, I had gotten my first breakout on my face. It is about an inch below my eye and next to my nose. The breakout is usually about the size of a quarter and swells horribly. Even my eye swells up. It is so mortifying when it happens, and the discomfort is unbearable. I was wondering if anyone else had herpes on their face the way I do...I have read great suggestions but most are geared toward the genitals or the lips, but has anyone ever tried remedies on facial herpes? Or any remedies on a breakout as big as mine? I would really love to find someone who has the same problem as me...or any good suggestions on large breakouts. I recently started taking L-Lysine too. Thanks!
