Diagnosed with eczema on face. Would it pass on to the partner if had sex?

I have just been diagnosed with eczema herpeticum on my face and I have a few questions. If I had sex now would I pass on the virus and could my partner get genital herpes? or any other form?.... If I have sex when it has cleared up, could I still pass on the virus and could my partner get genital herpes? or any other form?

Hello dear eczema herpeticum is infection by herpes virus at the site of any injury or previous skin disease.
When the lesions are active, there is chance of spread via sexual contact, but once the lesions are dry, you can safely have sexual intercourse.
Thank you.
