What size container, and how long has it been in there? Do you fertilize regularly? A photo will help me to better help you.

I would recommend to put dolomitic lime, and wettable sulfur on top of the soil. This will keep the pH balanced, and keep any infections at bay. I would fertilize with a granular all purpose every few month. This will prevent many issues before they start, which is often more frequent in container.
