Plaster wall. Recurring crack. Need advice.

Post by Cliff »

Hello, I've got a recurring crack in a plaster wall that is a problem. It has been scraped out, mesh taped, joint compounded, sanded primed and painted multiple times and it keeps coming back. I have attached a pic of a recent effirt where youcan see the crack forming butnot yet having fractured. Do I just scrape it out again and use caulk? Sorry in advance for the size of the photo I am posting this from a phone.
