tile over old drywall that has peeling paper


I removed the tiles from my bathroom shower. The drywall is intact, but the paper is peeling from the adhesive that was attached to the tile. Can I tile over this drywall, or do I need to replace it? Is there any type of product that I might be able to use to put over the peeling paper without having to take out the drywall?

You should remove all your old drywall and install durock.

Drywall doesn't belong in a shower.
