how do I fix a ceiling that has bubbled due to moisture. Can I sand and paint with a plastic paint, or sand and plaster or spackle. There is a fan running but after 4 showers the ceiling is wet.

Guyzher.....make sure first that your fam works. I know it is running - but make sure that it vents outside. If it is clear - you may need a bigger one - or make sure you leave it run after your shower.

You need to break those bubbles - remove what comes off - let it dry out for a while - then spackle - prime - and paint.

I would recommend after you spackle and sand - use a shellac primer (B-I-N is a good one). Then two coats of oil based semi-gloss. While I don't usually recommend alkyds - they are much more water resistant than latexes.

Make sure that you leave plenty of time to di this - don't have a hot shower in there until the paint is dry - 16-24 hours.
