Default Drywall bubbles

Hey Guys,

Does anyone have a suggestion for a joint that has slightly bubbled? I did not notice the bubble until I had already put 2 coats of primer on it. Also, if I can't fix the bubble, would white paint or beige paint hide this imperfection better?

FYI: This is a small one room job and as I live in a very rural area, I could not get a pro to even look at the job, hence why I am doing it myself.

Thank you.

I'd just scrape the affected area down with a paint scraper (the kind with the tungsten carbide blade will scrape off the joint compound but won't cut into the drywall beneath).

Then just apply joint compound, sand smooth and reprime and repaint.
