Is it possible that a person can have lesions in more than one area ??
For example can a person have a lesion on the buttocks and also on the genitals ??

Yes you can have lesions in more than one area. The virus resides in the nerve endings at the base of the spine or in the nerve endings of the face. When the virus activates, it can travel through any of the available nerves endings and cause an outbreak. Nerve endings have branches like a tree so you can have virus travelling through one branch or multiple branches.

I should have phrased my question a little better. Can a person have several lesions AT THE SAME TIME, i.e. during the same outbreak.

Sure can. A person can have multiple lesions in different areas or the same areas during a single outbreak.It just depends on how crazy the virus wants to be during the outbreak. One outbreak could create one lesion but then another single outbreak could cause multiple lesions in different areas of the affected area.Herpes is known as the creeping virus becuase it can sneak up anywhere during a single outbreak.
