Damp dries at about 1mm per 24 hours.
Buy a damp meter and check from time to time.
Keeping the room at a higher temperature than outside is the way to go.
Does this bedroom corner but on to the bathroom wall?
If it does the same applies.
If not, have you had damp there in previous winters?
Does it go away in the summer.
Damp in bedrooms is usually down to lack of ventilation in winter aided by keeping the windows closed and turning down or off the central heating.
Keeping the room at the same temperature will solve this problem.
Keeping the kitchen and bathroom doors closed and using extractor fans in the kitchen and bathroom when and after cooking and washing helps.
