Load your image into photoshop. Use either the magic wand/quick selection or pen tool to select the areas affected, that need correction. Next hold down the alt key, then on the bottom of the layers pallet click the "new fill or adjustment layer" (the one that is a circle half black and half grey), make sure you hold down the mouse button, then select "Hue/Saturation". In the box that appears tick the option that says "use previous layer to create clipping mask". Then hit ok.
You can now use the hue, saturation and lightness sliders to adjust the colour to another to blend in to the surroundings. I'd recommend that you always use this technique of ALT+ Adjustment Layer as it is continually editable, unlike accessing it through the main menu Image > adjustments > Hue Saturation, as these are single, permanent applications. If you want to make changes later you basically have to start again. The same applies to any of the other adjustments, whether its curves, levels, gradients etc, etc.
This is just one technique you can use. You could also highlight as before, hold alt, click "new fill adjustment layer" and then select either colour balance or channel mixer. Just remember to use the ALT + Adjustment Layer at the bottom of the layers pallet each time, as its a good habit to get into and can save you a lot of headache later.
