Do you have mold or mildew in your bathroom? A lot of people do. Bathrooms provide all the conditions mold needs to establish and grow: moisture, warm air, and organic material (grout, drywall, etc). If your bathroom isn’t ventilated well enough, you may find yourself with a chronic mold problem (that you should keep on top of with regular water/bleach cleanings). What if you want to re-paint your bathroom? Can you paint on top of mold? (No!) You must get rid of the mold first. You might then want to use an antifungal paint to inhibit the mold growth from returning. Here are some articles with good information about antifungal paint.
