This sounds, either, fungal or bacterial! Unfortunately, your photo did not come through so I cannot identify the issue.

This is caused by overwatering, most commonly. You will have to make sure to let these dry out, very thoroughly, between waterings. I would recommend treating with a fungicide, also.
