Drywall Repair in Bathroom

We just bought a house and while removing the wall paper from the bathroom walls it looks like some of the drywall came with it. I don't know if this was already a problem or not and that is why the paper was there. I don't know what products I should use to fix it. This isn't the only spot but it is the worst. Also it appears that the ceiling is also is pealing off. Thanks you any advise is very much appreciated. Attachment 77873Attachment 77872

Pics might alter the advice some but basically you'd coat all the exposed gypsum with either an oil base primer or Zinnser's Gardz and then repair the wall with joint compound.

Is the ceiling paint peeling or the j/c or plaster also. Is it limited to the edge next to the wall? How old is the house?

Agree with Mark on Gardz applied to all the exposed drywall paper. Let sit overnight and then skim coat with joint compound.

Advice stands although you'd want to at least tape off the chair rail, better yet remove it until the priming and skim coating is done.

I've taken liberty to upload your picture to the forum.

Is that plaster instead of drywall?
