The bubbling is caused by contamination: dirty fingers smearing stuff as kids often do. You need to scrape and/or sand the area until you get to an edge where the peeling stops. Prime and repaint. I had this happen in our kitchen after repainting. Originally repainted a few years back with no probs but the new paint triggered the reaction.
