Brown jelly disease?

Have a 6-7 head hammer, and one of the outer heads has been receding. It's actually been receding for a little over a week now. Actually now that I think of it, I don't think it ever grew a mouth, I think it was just an extension of the head next to it, anyways. That extension is now gone. Wondering what could have done it? Should I dip it?

Is it covered in a jelly like substance? If so, frag off the infected head. Sorry

I don't think it is, if it was everything would be gone by now I think because from what I've heard it only takes a few hours for the jelly to kill everything

Well..whats it look like? Just a dead head?

You would use a razor, or sharp item to cut the head off.

Is it a branching hammer or is it one long solid row of connected heads (sorry I forget the name for these kind). If its a branching hammer just use some side cutters and cut the skeleton off where it branches. This will also allow you to move the effected head to quarantine and see if it recovers or if it's a goner.

No the tissue is only at the top and only goes down about 3/4 of an inch into the skeleton.
