Hey cardinal girl. Most likely your painter used a water base stain blocking primer. If you use an oil base stain blocker, that should take care of your problem. Then you can go over that with a latex paint or paint of your choice. Water stains, nicotine stain, and magic markers are some of the stains where an oil base stain blocker usually performs a lot better. Hope this helps.
