Hi Jorge,

It could be that there is still water in the iPod. I suppose the LCD still works? Is the battery ok?

I recommend that you open it as soon as possible, remove the motherboard and soak it in isopropyl alcohol (90%). You might clean it with a small brush, too. Then let it dry for a couple of days and assemble the iPod again.

If the touch screen would still not work, you might want to replace it.

For the teardown of the iPod, you can follow the guide here on iFixit: iPod Touch 4th Generation Teardown
