Damaged Finish on Dresser - Sticky

One of those glow-in-the-dark rings leaked on my son's dresser and took the finish off in a couple spots. One spot is down to bare wood. It's also very gummy/sticky around the spots. I'm pretty sure the dresser it's a water based stain. The finish is ruined, so my goal now is just to get rid of the sticky spots. I've tried wiping it with a dry cloth and a damp one and the spots are still gummy. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

A rag damp with paint thinner should help to remove the stickiness.
