Your zone has one to many number in it, as our USDA zoning system uses 5 digits. I am not able to see your climate information.

I can take a guess, judging by the image, though.

This looks to be a bacterial blotch from overwatering. Make sure that all extra water is able to drain out of the container, completely, and that your planting mix does not hold moisture. This is best suited as a mix of cactus soil and compost, which will not allow too much moisture to remain in the soil.

From here, you may try obtaining a clean plantlet and separate it into clean soil. While this plantlet is growing, and recovering, you can attempt to treat the mother with a fungicide.
