    Unfortunately, you will have to scrape off the peeling paint. Paint usually peels cause there is something on the surface that prevented the paint from bonding, and cause you painted water-based latex paint or oil-based paint, or the wall or atmosphere has too much moisture.
    Scrape off, give a light sand, and prime with Zinseer B-I-N before painting again.

    Is there a water/moisture problem ? It looks like you may have a leak in that spot.

      I agree with John! This is generally how paint looks after it has gotten wet.

    did you use paint for wet areas?

    Did you have a stain you painted over? If so you should scrape off paint and apply Stain Block from DIY - when dry re-paint. If not you may have a leak that needs attention.

    that looks like dampness, not the paint. Maybe didn't dry out well before painting ? Better check......don't want it falling in on you !

      There was a leak several years ago. But the leak was fixed and the ceiling is dry
