bathroom paint cracking

Byram Lass

our bathroom had painted wallpaper. when we redid it post-Harvey the contractor ran a skim coat over the walls, primed and painted with a latex flat. well as the post title says, the paint above the shower walls is cracking.

I read that we're supposed to work the old paint off and reprime with an oil based primer. will that work as is or do we need to take down the old skim coat and then reprime?
