Hi it looks like a fungal disease, this is usually caused by too much water cactus don't like damp conditions prefer to almost dry out, also prelonged cold is not good as they originate from the desert so a sandy or gritty compost is better than compost with peat and full of quick release fertiliser, if you try to replicate desert conditions you should be able to save it, good luck!
