Painting Bathroom - Moisture Issue


An older home and need to re-paint the bathroom. Walls are moisture resistant wallboard and were primed and painted about 5 years ago. No exhaust fan in room at this time.
There are a few areas outside tub where paint is starting to bubble and peel. Figure it's due to moisture.
Have started sanding and scraping to remove these affected areas and was looking for recommendation for primer and paint. Looked at Zissner Bullys Eye as Ive read using an oil based primer in bathroom may be beneficial. Is this acceptable What type of paint is recommened
Thanks for your help on this

Zinsser Perma-White is a good bathroom paint.

You're first priority would be to install a fan. Moisture is the bane of all painting projects

Krnrkick, if your problem was from steam, you would have paint failure on the ceiling and upper walls, cracking and peeling that has a shattered appearance. Blistering and peeling around the tub is most likely a failed caulk joint that is allowing water in behind the drywall. I agree with chris about the fan, but that could be a costly fix. No ventilation could cause mildew, which the perma-white is formulated to fight. Remove any failed caulk, get some oil primer in the gap to seal that surface, and caulk it tight. Use a quality siliconized caulk, no DAP or painter's caulk. If you don't have any paint failure on the ceiling, the finish you used before should be okay, to which you could add mildewcide if you need it. You might find some useful info on bathrooms at my site below.
