Help with damp and best course of action with wall

Postby Joswat1234 » Sat Jun 20, 2020 1:09 pm

The window seal next to a wall we want to paint has deteriorated and caused damp. After lifting off the old layer of gold wallpaper, I noticed that the wall was bulging in the corner so I started to pick at it and now it looks like there may be another layer of wallpaper against the concrete (covered with a layer of paint). Should I leave it now and paint over or should I rip up all of what looks to be paper from the rest of the wall (note the rest of the wall is in great condition)?
