I've had so many of those that I finally wrote up a report on some of the
correction techniques. Be happy to share it with you off-list, if you'd
like.
People have found that making the corrections in Lab color (or in R,G,B
channels) works best. That option isn't available with Photoshohp LE,
unfortunately, but it is in Corel Photo-Paint.

That sounds like something I found in one of my old Kodacolor negs. Careful
cloning with a soft 45-pixel brush cleared it up--for some reason, a soft
brush softens *all* its area, even if there's texture in the source target.
Blurring in a "mask" will also work, if you can get the mask tools to behave
properly. They take some getting use to.

Best regards--LRA
