Saira Hafeez, the first thing you want to is to clean your phone. It sounds from your question like the damage is already a bit older. RiceRice, or any other remedyremedy, will only help in an acute phase. It will only displace some of the waterwater, and will not prevent corrosion. You never want to turn on any device that has had water damage until it is properly cleaned, turning it on may cause short circuits due to corrosion. Follow [guide|5825|this guide]to clean your phone. It was written for a 3G but all the points still apply to your phone as well. Once you cleaned is properly,'''replace the battery'' and reevaluate for any damage.
