Did you bond your area first before plastering ?
if not you will continue to get these spots so you now need to seal the area with Gliddens primer sealer or Zinsser 123 "blue tin".
Then redecorate to finish you want.
It costs you in the long run not to take short cuts when doing this type of work has there will always be a reaction with substrates unless the correct procedure is followed.
Good luck
