How to eliminate editing "seams" on panoramas for 360°

After PTGui, I bring the stitched panorama into PS for some basic edits/adjustments/sharpening. I'm using an old version of PS - CC2015, so I can't view panoramas as 360's in PS.

When I view the panorama in Affinity Photo or the software I use to create virtual tours, there is usually a seam where the left and right edges meet when wrapped around and viewed as a 360°.

What's the best/easiest way to remove this while still in PS so I don't have to bother going into Affinity? I've tried using a mask with a low-flow eraser on the sides and top (nadir gets a cap), but I'm not getting the results I'd like. I wind up using a combination of the healing brush, clone stamp, or some other type of relevant tool, but sometimes when the seam is at an inconvenient place it's kind of pain and time consuming to do it this way. I figure there must be an quicker, easier process.
