    Use the paint brush tool ... sample the colour from where you want the colour to be ... then paint over the area with a 50% soft edge brush.

    Thank you Paul, is there a tutorial I could follow (youtube maybe?) I had a quick go and made it very grey and a lot worse!

    Use the picker to select the area you want to paint from (select foreground colour then use picker).. I selected the pink area just behind his ear
    If your selection is grey you cant have the correct colour to paint with.

    Thank you, tried that, turned the opacity down to 29% but it looks very noticeable. Not sure how I can get it to blend in more? Capture.JPG

    Looks like you have a fairly hard edged brush .... just keep painting over the area and then alter the opacity to get the level of cover you need.

    After painting/ cloning the area use the blur brush on low oppacity to smooth the skin out a touch ... see below

    You might do better with the Patch Tool or Clone Stamp to keep a decent texture in.

    Using the clone stamp, the patch tool, healing brush and Add Noise filter. Not a 5 minute job but worth the effort IMHO.

    To keep som texture, what I did in this edit was to pick an irregular ( cloud shaped) brush in the clone tool, set on `lighten `, 100% in the top menu, click the colour chosen as above and then clone in. The brush will only have an effect where the skin is darker. Then switch to darken at 50% and touch in again ( including the white patch at the top behind his ear.)

    The clone tool set to colour is another option, it leaves the texture alone and just brings the colour across from the area you sample.

    Another method is to create a new blank layer, fill it with the colour you pick from a 'clean' area. Set the blend mode to colour, apply a layer mask then just paint in the areas you want to affect. Adjust the layer opacity to taste.

    I am not good in photo editing, but tried removing those red patch by toolpic.
    I just used Clone stamp tools on that area. Before applying clone stamp tool just Press SHIFT + The area which you want to clone on that red patch.
