How to clean/touch up paint seepage over caulk?

My bathroom was just recently remodeled and there is a thin line of paintable caulk between the tile of the shower and the surrounding drywall of the walls and ceiling. After painting, there is a little paint seepage over the wall onto the caulk in places.

What is the best way to touch this up? Removing the paint seems tricky and might possibly damage the caulk or existing paint. Caulking over the original caulk seems the best but I realize there will be bonding issues. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Scrape caulk and recaulk. In the tile section you will find matching grout colored caulking in sanded or In sanded textures to match your grout.

Scraping the old caulk is something I'd really like to avoid for all the issues. Is there any other alternative?

You could paint the caulk with the wall paint.
