It does appear to have contracted an infection. I would treat with wettable sulfur, since it will acidify the soil while killing the disease. These succulents will be very sensitive to overwatering, so be sure that it does dry out well between.

Other fungicides may be used, but may not serve the same purposes as sulfur, which can be used in lime form as well.
