Bathroom wall

Name:  image.jpg
Views: 209
Size:  11.4 KBHi, we are having problems with our drywall that butts up against the shower stall. Water had leaked out and caused it to crumble and peel. Can I remud the drywall or do I need to replace the piece of drywall?

Eventually I will be tiling that wall so it can be more kid friendly with all the water they track out.

Any advice will be helpful! Sorry I don't know why the pic is sideways!

Now my neck hurts. Cut out the damaged piece of drywall back to the stud & replace it.

Welcome to the forums!

If I'm seeing correctly, the drywall is missing and the stud shows ?? if so, you need to replace a small section of drywall. Once finished prime the repair, caulk where the drywall meets the tub/surround and apply a coat or two of latex enamel. The enamel paint along with the caulking should prevent a reoccurence.
