Why is the right side of my screen not responding to touch?

last week i spent some time at a hot tub and used my phone for a few minutes while i was in it. i never dropped my phone in the water or got it wet. now the right side of my screen is unresponsive, the i, k, and m keys don’t work and if i touch that side of the screen nothing happens. could i have gotten water damage just from my phone being around the steam???

Find out if liquid damaged your iPhone or iPod

iPhone and most iPod devices are equipped with Liquid Contact Indicators (LCIs) that you can see from the outside.

An LCI will activate when it contacts water or a liquid containing water. The indicator's color is normally white or silver, but when it contacts water or a liquid containing water, it will turn fully red. An LCI won't activate because of humidity and temperature changes that are within the product's environmental requirements.

To find out if the LCI in your device contacted liquid, find your product in the table below and locate the LCI or LCIs in your device. To help you see the LCI, use a lighted magnifying glass and angle the light or the device until you can see the LCI.

This table shows where the indicator (or indicators) are and how they look after being exposed to liquid:"

I have the same issue. Three months ago after updating my device to ios 15 I noticed the right side (edge) wasn’t responding to touches which affected “P and M” and other stuff aligned in that postion of the screen. I was surprised cos it started suddenly, my iphone xs didn’t fall or got submerged in water even with the water resistant i still won’t try it. And just few hours ago. It increased… other parts that responded to touches to stopped again… making it larger. I literally cannot use my phone for any wtf is this? Right not i find it hard to send messages on apps like instagram, snapchat and WhatsApp cos the send icon won’t respond.
