flaking paint

Hi there

I hope someone can help me with a problem I have with repainting my house.
We had a leak under our floor ant the dampness came up the wall and the paint came off the bottom of the wall up to about a foot above the floor.
We have had the leak fixed but now we will have to repaint but I donít know what to do about the area that the paint came off if I just paint over it you can still see where the paint meets.

You need to scrape off all the peeling paint, smooth the area with joint compound, then prime and paint.
