    An area on an interior plaster wall adjoining my neighbour's chimney has a rust coloured patch. I've treated this 2 -3 times with cuprinol damp stop on and painted over it with emulsion but after a few weeks the wall starts to blister again from under the damp stop. Any ideas how I can deal with this?

    i would guess you would have to remove the plaster, and sww what is causing the patch.

    Does it appear more so after it has rained?

    The weather doesn't affect it. I have similar patches next to one of my own unused fireplaces they don't blister even though the staining eventually seeps through after using a stain stop. Beneath the plaster that does blister is a stone or brick wall separating my house from my neighbours and adjoining her chimnney. I think we can safely say that her chimney is the cause and impossible to cure so I'm rally looking for a damage mangement strategy.
