paint will have this affect in damp conditions, or when air circulation is poor,
depending what surface you have applied the paint to,will also affect this.

Chances are the surface wasn’t keyed and primed correctly but damp conditions would also effect the end product

it will be damp no ventilation in wardrobe if you sand down and spray stainblock then paint it will be ok but open doors over night and open doors everymonth to let air in and out to stop damp

Not a very good answer. I would say that the surface, probably MDF has not been given an initial treatment before applying primer and undercoat. it may not even have been primed.
