My Camera Got Wet, What Should I Do?

I left the camera on my bed last night, I always have. Today I realized that my bed was wet due to a water bottle not being completely closed. I didn't think the camera got it since the water bottle wasn't even near it. Not thinking about it, I picked the camera up to take a picture of something. It was a little wet, damp, so I didn't think much of it. I turned it on and the screen was completely white and was not really clear. I took a quick picture (it flashed) and I inserted the card into my laptop. When I did the picture was really blurry and white. This is not the first camera that this has happened to but this is my last camera and me and my family cannot afford a new one. I am wondering if there is anyway I can fix it? I have the camera airing out with the battery and card out of it. It also froze with the lens out and I can't get it back in right now . Can someone please help?

Luckily, there is a fair chance you can take pictures with your smartphone also.

I sadly don't have a SmartPhone. I only have an LG Xpression, which is an older phone that can't even zoom pictures and is very blurry with quality.
