Sounds like it could be something known as 'scale'. If it is scale, then it is probably the biggest problem people have with San Pedro cacti. Scale is an insect living under the skin of the cactus.
There are a few ways of getting rid of it. One of them is to get some methylated spirits, diluted to 1/3 strength with water (I am just going off memory here) then take a cotton bud and use that to rub the solution directly onto the scale.
You can also spray your plant with a systemic fungicide / pesticide every now and then, being sure to cover all exposed areas of skin.

You're probably watering it too much and not giving it enough sunlight.

I wasn't suggesting that, dumb guy. You need more light, less water.

I think your cactus has scars... Not really something I'd worry about.

hello, this is my first post. I have been growing pedro for ten years and it`s a very hardy cactus. i wouldnt worry brown and black spots are caused by not enogh light.
my cactus sits in a room with only incandesint light all winter and go into a dorment cycle.
in the summer when i put them outdoors the take off.

i only water once a month indoors. never tried useing a grow set up with florecents,probably will be succeful as it is more of a full spectrum light(like sunlight)
if your succesful at getting good growth let us know. florecents are cheap and i could put one over mine and sustain growth year around. good luck

hey psylo33, is it indoors? the reason i ask is i had a pedro that got black bumps on it and a black builup in the crease. when i would take them off they would grow back.
then i put my baby outdoors and the black quit growing and just left a scar. pedro is next to impossible to kill. the only time i have ever hurt one was i over watered one and the base rotted. i trimed off the rotten part and reaplanted it. he just turned 8 years old this summer
