I had my whole house skimmed.

One of the bedrooms after it was dry I painted. I thought I had applied too much paint as it ran slightly and was patchy.

I had a heater in and it dried much better. Its probably been a month or so and that room, the one wall is getting more patchy damp looking through the paint.

When I touch the area the wall feels really cold compared to the rest. It is the gable end wall of the house, very exposed to the elements. From the outside there doesnt seem to be anything too sinister render wise, a little flaking paintwork.

An area around the corner I had rendering fixed that had come away however shouldnt be the cause of my now problem.

What could it be and how should I treat?
Should I apply remove the paint where the problems occuring, there are no cracks/crumbling or salts on the walls. Then apply some damp seal paint?

Previously the house room had wallpaper on. I didnt find anything bad underneath, prior to the skimming

damp seal or so called blocker gets blown off by penetrating damp.
