How can I fix peeling paint in bathroom? Latex paint was put directly on new drywall without using primer under it. Answered

Paint is now cracking, then curling up in dime to quarter-sized pieces in about a 3x3 foot section above the shower in bathroom.

Unfortunately, the only cure for this problem is to strip the paint and start over. Haul out the plastic drop cloth, tape it around your shower, and scrape away! Get everything, not just what's currently peeling, as it's only a matter of time for the rest. Prime and paint as should have been done originally, and make sure you've got a good exhaust fan installed in the bathroom to control humidity.
