Hello Kaz and welcome to the forum,
I have quite a few Serissas growing on my stands and know what makes them happy, but I've never seen what you describe on any of mine. From the sounds of it, you have some sort of scale growing on yours, but that's only a quess on my part.
Will you please post a picture of your plant, both an overall shot and an in-focus closeup of a branch so that we can all help with the diagnosis.
Without a picture it's probably going to be impossible for anyone to know what's going on and suggest first aid.
