It could be condensation causing the damp rather than rising damp which is a load of nonsense and completely unproven. Have you had double glazing installed recently or a driveway or patio that breeches above the damp proof course. It could also be cracks in the render or missing pointing in the brickwork. A good builder should be able to advise.

Its called efflorescence, basically salt, you must have a damp problem, best thing to do is call a damp proof injection company..
