This, actually, looks more like a fungal issue, possibly shothole fungus.

The best way to deal with this is prevention, such as letting the soil dry out almost completely between waterings, and keeping the plant trimmed to allow for airflow between it.

For now, a mix of 1/4 peroxide to 3/4 water will help.
