It started going all splotchy a few months ago and now the splotches are spouting dandruff, it does not feel wet so i am baffled, if it was the paint
there would be none left by now, i thought it might be some sort of mould
like i had in the bath room only that was greeny blue and i killed that with detol, i tried detol on the chimney breast with no result, so i thought i could try sealing it, i tried a patch that is out of sight, that has not worked either, all though i am not sure if hair spray is the right stuff to use, i just so do not want to re decorate as i am not very good it, does any one have an idea as to what this and how to cure it?

I have no idea what a chimney breast is. I'm sure it must be called something else here.

Well it is not my chimney booby it is the bit of wall that sticks out over a fire place, may be thats why we call it a breast cause it sticks out.

oh, ok. I don't have any ideas but I think that might be what I think of as a "mantle".

Maybe you're being taken over by lichens. Is it a stony mantle or wood?

Hmm... probably not lichens then; they live on rock.

I have a wooden rail that is about 4 ft up a whatchamcallit ------------
a dido rail, that gets cover from the fall out from the splotches, i am just glad the splotches are not red.

This is sounding a bit stranger all the time. Can you post some photos?

Anyhow, gotta go for now. Jerry Doucette is playing at our local pub, and the doors opened 15 minutes ago.

It's sounding more and more like demonic possession to me. I suggest spraying the chimney with holy water.

Using a scrub and soap as well won't hurt, either..

Unless it's true demonic possession. You've seen it, blood appears (or green slime), the person washes it off, next day it's back.
