Popeye and Velvet?

Hi, I have a male betta. He is currently being treated for velvet (contracted it from another fish) with Aq. Salts. I have just noticed that one of his eyes is starting to pop out a little. He has always had bulging eyes, I think he was born with it. But his one eye seems to be protruding far more than the other. I have read the Aq. Salts irratates popeye. Should I switch him to Epsom Salts? Please note, he is still being treated with Aq. Salts for velvet. Thank you!

You could treat him with an anti-parasitic medication for the velvet while using epsom salt for the eye swelling at 1-2 teaspoons per gallon.
