Herpes outbreak after 7 years?

I am a 27 yrs old, female, and the last time I had sex was 7 years ago and it was one-time, unprotected. Before that I had had 4 other sexual partners at different times.

A year and a half ago I got one lesion on the inside of my vaginal lip and slight burning when I urinated. The lesion went away after 5 days or so and never broke open or crusted, just sort of disappeared. I've had no other symptoms until 2 days ago. Now there are about 4 lesions some small enough I can barely see them and the skin is red and slight burning while I urinate. Both of these outbreaks have happened during my menstrual period.

I also moved overseas to an undeveloped country with a tropical climate over 2 years ago. Is it possible there is another virus/bacteria causing these symptoms? Or can herpes lay dormant for 7 years with no signs or symptoms?
