My "asthma* symptoms have never included a tickly cough until now. Ventolin relieves the cough. Can blue inhalers relieve coughs in non-asthmatics?

In brief: Possibly

Some people who developed a cough from a viral infection may benefit from an albuterol inhaler.
However if you have asthma, you may need a controller drug such as an inhaled steroid for a chronic condition. instead of Ventolin.
