It sounds like you may have scale or mealybugs. I would recommend neem oil. I have found it to be very effective against these pests. Here is more information on it: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm

For additional information on scale bugs, which commonly affect these plants, here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/scale-bug-how-to-control-plant-scale.htm
