I painted my small bathroom dark red in my newly (& poorly) renovated apt. The paint has just started to mildew, bubble & sag in certain areas near the shower. I have an overhead exhaust fan & a dehumidifier to fight moisture. I popped a few of the LARGE bubbles and water & wet plaster came pouring out. Is this problem due to bad paint/paintjob, or due to the poor construction of the walls? The wall underneath the paint is very moist & soft, like mush. So do I need to completely remove all the paint? Do the walls need redone??? WHAT IS THIS & HOW DO I FIX?PLEASE HELP!!!! (Please Note: I am a girl w/ NO painting or home repair experience!)

It sounds like you have a leak that is getting the wall wet and until you find the source there is no need to worry about the paint job. It is time to call the landlord.

Like 5 said the walls are mushy and damp it has nothing to do with the paint,you have water damage from someplace,and until this is fixed you could paint and repaint but nothing will fix this.
