    Over the past year or so, I've started to get airbubbles that only appear when its shower/bath time.

    What's the best route to fix this.. (and what's the cause?)
    Junior DIY'er here so any advice appreciated.

    I'm guessing sand the entire ceiling to remove the paint.
    Seal it? (if so, what with?)
    and repaint.

    Any other things to think of in this situation?
    Cheers

    Scrape off all the loose paint, fill to eliminate the edges left, sand, spot prime bare plaster and filler with diluted matt emulsion, re-paint the whole ceiling.
