You should work on your mastery with CURVES!

I agree I used curves predominately. Also selective color or hue/saturation can be used depending on the situation. You may need to use masks and selections.

Without a photo it's hard to tell. It sounds like hue saturation is your best bet. Use that drop down menu that says master. Set it to any color, now click on a color you want to change in the image. Then push saturation all the way up and move hue to turn the color you want to work on to a different color. Say you're working on skin, pull hue down to turn the skin blue. Now you can use the color sliders at the bottom to zero in on your target color. You can use the alt key to split the sliders. Once you've zero'd in on the color set your hue and sat the way you want them. Work on a separate layer and if there is color bleed you can mask it out.
