Default Moisture inside my VQ1015-Entry : HELP?

My toycam hit the shelves for quite some time during the winter season and when I came to shoot photos with it again, weird water droplets started showing in the shots. I don't know if it's actually moisture or whatever but I do want some help on how I can resolve this?

Silica Gel packets can be used to absorb moisture, but it won't do anything about the marks that may remain after the moisture evaporates.

You might be better off getting the camera professionally cleaned, and use the silica gel packets to prevent this from happening again.
