I am a patient having Paroxysmal SVT (Echo shows mild diastolic disfucntion and rest evry thing normal)and was on diltiazem 60 daily for the past two years. Recently when I do some exercise the palpiataion started again. Doctor advised me to take bisopropol fumerate insted of diltiazem. But now I have skin problems seems to be flare up of psoriasis . What medicine I should take, rather go back to Diltiazem and icrease the dose, please give an answer. Thank you Abdul Jaleel

Hi,
After reading your history it appears that you might have developed dermatitis. I advise you to not pinch or pop the area otherwise these areas are very prone for getting secondary infection. You can apply an steroid cream such as cortisone cream. If itching is present then can take benadryl accordingly. Apply a plenty of moisturizers over the affected area. If these increase then consult a dermatologist for higher treatment.
