You have two ways to handle that. First: (Just saying- if there is a water ''damage'' YOU CAN'T SEE IT.) So if you think you are professional in theese stuff you can take a screwdriver, open the camera and clean its parts.
Second: Take that to a real professional to fix it. (The minus is that you have to pay) And here we go:)
Depends on how wet the camera got and if it was fresh water or salt water. Take your camera to an authorized Canon service center ASAP. The longer you wait the less likely it is that your camera will be repairable.

if the problem persist you need to clean the memory card port by using instant contact cleaner and wait until it completely dry before you open it and make sure the battery is remove to the camera while do this procedure..
Wait ,Wait ,didn't you romove the Canon digital ixus 50 battery at once when the camera drop at the swimming pool. You'd better ask the CANON Service Centerto for help,this will completely good and safe for your Canon IXUS 90, wish you good luck!
I would not recommend to get repaired that camera which was dropped in water. It will need main board and lens assembly replacement that would cost almost new camera price. New camera purchase is better. Thanks.
Try this and rate me if useful :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .
it sounds crazy .
Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.
Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.
It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).
beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.
This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Not really a solution, But my camera and I fell in a lake. I took it ALL apart and didn't touch it for four days. It turned on and worked, though I had to re-set all my settings. The only thing that doesn't work is the "trash" button, and I can live without it :) good luck!
the insides didnt get ruined, its just that they got filled with water thats normal..wait until 2 days after this happened, and then it should be working properly if this doesnt work, then you have to pay money to get it fixed
If you tried turning the camera on while the electronics were still wet, it may be too late to offer any help.
Assuming you do this again, any piece of electronics that is immersed in water may begin to corrode immediately upon exposure to air, and if you don't want to take the chance of corrosion, you should take your camera to a professional repair depot.
Without disassembling the camera and drying out the pieces manually, there's nothing you can do except open every available crevice (lense, battery area, CF memory slot), remove the battery and memory card (which can then be dried CAREFULLY by hand), and hope that all pieces of the camera will eventually dry out (I'd leave it in a dry, warm environment for at least 3-4 days - longer if you can wait).
