My cactus is getting soft white spots?

Why does my beautiful cactus suddenly have soft white spots that when broken they ooze a reddish purple liquid when they break? So upset.

Thanks for writing. I'm sorry, but without being able to see your plant, I can't accurately diagnose it. This free service really isn't meant for this kind of question because we don't have enough information. But, you should be able to get better help from the folks at your county extension office --- especially if you can tell them what kind of cactus it is, what the growing conditions are, etc. Sorry that I can't help more.
