This is from http://www.drugs.com/pro/regitine.html

"... Regitine is indicated for the prevention or treatment of dermal necrosis and sloughing following intravenous administration or extravasation of norepinephrine."

I am not sure whether it is an antidote for esmolol. You should seek professional advice if this has happened to you.
