Yeah, I've had that problem more than once with both Otos and SAE's, and I hear it happens often with many types of Plecos, except BNP's. It usually occurs as these species get more mature, larger and more aggressive, and they quickly develop a taste for the discus slime coat protein.
Discus can usually manage to readily shrug them off, but it's a hassle for the discus which no doubt stresses them, and of course stress often leads to health issues with discus. Not worth keeping any of these guys as tank-mates for discus anytime.
