Default Nexus 5 TouchScreen not responding in 50% of areas, after water dammage

so basically , i tried to put on a screen protector that requires water and soap , so i put way to much on it , and now screen isnt responding , i was dumb and turned it on then turned it off and took off cover , cleaned it in and out , then put it in some rice for 2 days , it still has the problem.... is there anything i can do right now or is it basically RIP?

i just got the htc one m8 because of that at&t next program and i saved 40 bucks a month now... but i still love my nexus 5, its the best phone i ever had , and i really want to fix it up , is there anyway i can clean the digitizer connector??
