Blotches/Mold: Please help if you can

Here are two portions of pictures below I am working on. I have been trying different things with Neat, an FFT filter, and the poloroid scratch and dust filter with so far no luck. The dress has a floral print on it that results in tons of blotchiness when trying to fix is. I think I'm just overlooking something or making it more difficult than it really is. Can anyone help? Thanks a million.

Not sure what I'm looking at. The two don't look the same to me.
Can you post a larger section?

same problem as vikki here, though i think the first one, the white one, is the dress on the left with an inner left elbow down the lower right.

on the white one, about your only options are 'longhand', meaning, clone and similar tools. fft wont do it. nor will polaroid's d&s, not completely at least unless you go manual, and even then i'd just stick with clone/heal/push/smudge/ and other similar ones.

the dark image i dont know what it is so i wouldnt even comment till i knew more.

Sorry about that. The photo on the left is part of a lady's dress with a floral print, the other is a blue tshirt. I actually sized these down so I could upload them. I think I may be on to the blue shirt one. I think I just needed to use those programs in a different order. I'll still take any advice if you can. Still the dress has me really stumped. Here's a bigger section of the dress. Sorry I can't show the whole photos, it's for someone that I don't have their permission to post the whole thing. Thanks for the help

ok, that's better. thanks.

i just did enough to give you an idea of how you could proceed on this. this is done strictly with clone and push brushes, low opacities on both and short strokes or just dabs. you work a little bit at a time and be liberal with the undo command. it takes some time. it's strictly hand work; no automations here. just dig in and do the dirty work i kinda like cloning. very relaxing

Channel Mixer

The blue channel seemed to be the most affected. So all I did to start was to use a channel mixer adjustment layer. That may be a way to start.

LOL I had wished for a complete automatic fix here but now that I think about it, if they had a complete automatic repair I wouldn't have a job hee hee. Cloning is very relaxing... not enough coffee and you can clone or healbrush yourself to sleep. I'll definately take both of the advice given and try that.
