It sound like brown jelly disease. Try to frag off all the dying parts and dip the good heads in something like coral rx.
Corals - Bacterial

Yep, thats a sign of it dying. What are your tank conditions? Ammonia, nitrate, lighting, etc.

Brown jelly will only effect lps. The best thing to do is frag (cut or break off) the infected part and discard it. Dip the healthy heads in some iodine or coral rx and hope for the best.
