Symbicort side effects with rash?

Has anyone ever had a rash reaction on their face due to Symbicort? I have been on it since April and my face keeps breaking out more and more. I decreased my inhalations from 2 twice a day to one twice a day and it cleared up. I called my asthma doctor and the nurse told me it was just a coincidence and to go back to my prescribed dosage. Can Symbicort cause problems like this?

    I have been on Symbicort for 10 years and have never had a problem with it. Symbicort has been great for me.
