Does Albuterol (ProAir, Proventil, and Ventolin) cause acne?

Albuterol is a bronchodilator prescribed to treat asthma. It is the 3rd most commonly prescribed medication for teenagers.

Albuterol is a short-acting beta agonist. It is branded as ProAir, Proventil, and Ventolin. It works by relaxing the muscles around the airways. Because it is not used on a regularly scheduled basis, and doesn’t affect the hormonal system, it is unlikely to trigger acne. More likely, as a medication heavily prescribed to teenagers, it correlates with the onset of acne.
