Removing Pumpkin Mildew

There is white powdery stuff on my pumpkins. I'm assuming it's powdery mildew. The leaves are already turning brown, and I'm worried that I will loose my pumpkins before Halloween. Does powdery mildew affect the pumpkins themselves, and if so how can I save them from going bad? Please help! Thanks.

Hi guys, I've just read that a spray with 10 % milk to water does the trick. I'm going to try it myself
