My two year old wiped the screen with one of those hand cleaner swabs handed out at restaurants after a meal. I assume it contains some alcohol or cleaning agent. It left a permanent mark on the screen which shows whenever the screen is dark. I tried removing by just wiping with a damp cloth and it didn't work. What can I do??

Short answer is no, if the screen is plastic and the chemical attacks the plastic. If it is too much liquid and it seeps between any layers, it could evaporate over time, but you will likely have a noticeable dry stain forever.
For you and everyone reading this, never spray or apply any liquid to any TV, monitor, laptop, or cell phone screen directly, I think it says that in the owners manual. Always apply a light amount of TV screen cleaner spray to a microfiber cloth and then lightly clean the screen. DO NOT use anything with alcohol, ammonia, glass cleaner types, baby wipes, pre-moistened wipes of any type unless it specifically states it's for LCD monitors and TV's. If you or the manufacturer apply more cleaner to the wipe or cloth than necessary, blot excess cleaner with a dry paper towel so that the liquid doesn't run or drip when applied to the screen during cleaning.
It could possibly be stained and cleaning will not help. Please run out to the electronics store and purchase an LCD cleaner or LCD cleaner wipes. Hope you can still fix this. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!
Hair spray works pretty well for this. I have also found that starting fluid on a rag will wipe it right off.
One think that works wonders with any stain is to go to the auto parts store and buy the hand cleaner called gunk it surprisingly has directions on it for removing stains and works really well

Laundry soap dyes are usually more difficult to remove than other colors.² However, oxygen bleach, such as Oxi-Clean, can sometimes clean away even the red stains. Sprinkle the powder on a damp sponge and scrub away the stain.
Soak a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and wipe away the detergent stain. If the stain is not immediately lifted, allow the alcohol to soak for several minutes.
Vinegar is effective on many kinds of stains. Make a solution of one part vinegar in two parts water and sponge the vinegar onto the stain.
Baking soda can be effective for removing detergents from appliance surfaces. Sprinkle baking soda on a damp sponge and clean the stain until removed.
Combine equal parts of 3% hydrogen peroxide with water and sponge the stain with the solution.
Soak a cloth with acetone nail polish remover and use it to wipe off the stain. If the stain does not wipe off right away, it may help to lay the cloth over the stain to soak for a few minutes.
As a last resort, wipe paint thinner on the stain. Paint thinner can remove most dye stains. However, you may want to test this on a small, hidden area first to be sure the paint thinner won't damage the lacquer on the appliance or cause any other adverse effects.
Once you have removed the stain, wash the area with soapy water to remove any residue from the cleaning solution.
