Bathroom Mold

I found this in the bathroom recently. I assume its mold. My question is should I get a bigger fan, better paint, or any ideas on how to prevent this from getting worse or coming back?

Any help appreciated

That generally happens because walls don't exactly get washed very often... and there is little to no air movement in the corners, so mold can grow due to the high humidity. Spray some Tilex on it and see if it wipes off. If it leaves a residual stain, repaint with a paint that has a mildewicide in it. I don't usually like semi gloss on ceilings but in a bathroom its probably the best gloss to have since its more washable.

I like to use Zinnser's satin PermaWhite on bath ceilings - it has extra mildewcide in it. It only comes in white although it can accept a small amount of tint.
