Mildew and mold will grow anywhere that conditions are right. Can you kill it by spraying it with a solution of 25% bleach in water? If so, that will take care of it.

You can prime over it to seal in the stain and paint. Be sure you have adequate ventilation in you bathroom to keep moisture to a minimum.

Hello lostoutwest, I would say that the repairs could have been done before the area above the bath was completely dry. Once dry a coat or two of an oil primer like KILZ Original or better Zinsser BIN followed by paint of your choice should work.....Mike
