Ok, so I was pealing off the wallpaper in the basement bathroom where we have a single standing wall. The standup shower is on one side and nothing is on the other...just a mirror hanging. Well, the corner of the wall was I pealed the wallpaper off, this plaster started falling off and there seems to be a metal piece that is rusted. Is this a problem? Can I just re-plaster this metal piece or should I remove it and put another piece up?? Our basement is very moist in the summer. I plan on putting a dehumidifier in there for the summer months but I can't afford a major project. It's our second bathroom and it's in our finished basement. Not a big deal. What's the best way/ cheapest to repair this until we can afford redoing the bathroom??

If there are any signs of leaking you need to get it fixed NOW.

If it appears that it is condensation then cover it with pipe insulation and then repair the wall.
