Removing soft edged coloured patches in Photoshop

I have a photo that has a large soft edged patch of magenta (lens flare I think) in a very detailed shadow area of the photo. What is the best way to remove it?

I tried selecting the colour and inverting it and brushing back over it with a low opacity but it just ended up looking muddy.
