Default [Q] Dropped htc one in water

I might really need someones help now.
I wasnt really using it but somehow i managed to drop my htc one in W/c. and it was half inside and within seconds i picked it up. it was inside the water from the headphones jack and when i removed it it was working fine for couple of mins and then it started restarting on it own. i read about rice so i kept it in a bag full of uncooked rice for 3 days and nights and tried switching it on. nothing works but that same thing happens. when i dropped it in water 25% of the screen from earphones jack had water and i could actually see it and after a couple of days the water got absorbed and there are barely some water marks in the screen whenever i try switching it on. and right now i have kept it in a bag full of moisturizer absorber and kept it for a night nothing really helped yet. just the water from screen got absorbed and nothing is working anything yet. and the flash is yellow. so i dont know if i should fool the service center guys or keep it longer and make it work or what?
help please.

Should've left it off for a week or so.. Or got it opened and dried and cleaned. Nothing can be done now. Wait and watch, or if you still can, get to a good technician and ask him to open and clean/dry the phone. Good luck
