Need some assistance after removing wallpaper and wanting to paint.

Paint is peeling after removal of the wallpaper. Too much moisture in the small bath. Fan doesn't seem to help. Do I re-wallpaper or paint with a certain type of paint?

Did you thoroughly clean the walls after removing the wallpaper and before priming / painting?

Propably had some adhesive or sizing residue left over. Wash down walls with TSP and maybe a light run of fine sandpaper, wipe down with damp cloth to remove all dust, then prime and paint.

I am sure you have paste residue. Using Warm water and "DIF" remover is good. Hot water and fabric softener is a good option too.
when painting a small room , you may end up with massive amounts of moisture on walls and windows due to evaporation of the drying paint. air movement is key and a dehumidifier would help.
If you know that you have an exhaust fan that is not really beneficial to your room, I would suggest using Benjamin Moore Bath And Spa paint. It is specifically made for high humidity and moist areas. It has a mildewcide in the product so no fungus can grow in or on it.
Good luck!
