Help! Blue spots coming through white paint?!

Members online

Hi all,

I need help! I’ve recently moved into an apartment building and blue spots have been appearing through the white paint in my bedroom. I have no idea what they are.

Can someone please identify the problem and tell me how to fix it! It’s driving me mad!
I’ve attached a photograph.

Thank you so much!

need more photos. If not furry, then could be some ‘artwork’ that’s been painted over that had ink in. Is it all over, or just localised? Zinsser do good stain block paint, but not particularly cheap.
I’m sure @Tom81 and @themucky1 Will be along shortly to advise.

Thanks @ChrispyUK
@Jesswilliams7654 put your hand on the surface that has these spots, is the surface warm? If so I’m afraid it could be measles.
If its cool to touch urge good news is it’s not measles but penetrating damp.
Bad news is your new apartment building will probably collapse quicker than the economy following coronavirus. Glad I could be of assistance
