It would really help me to have some pictures, but without them my best guess would be a fungal infection. In this case, the best treatment will be wettable sulfur and dolomitic lime. This will kill the infection, as well as keep the soil conditioned while this is happening.

If you can find a way to include photos, then I can identify the exact pest, and offer a more customized solution.
