Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I am unable to see the damage. From your description, it could be an infection.

I would recommend a fungicide, in case this is an infection, and to make sure that the soil is, very thoroughly, dried down to about 3 or 4 inches or so before thinking about watering them.
