Pentax DSLR buttons(ISO, EV) became sticky to fingers -- how to fix?

Posted on other forums, but no one bothered to reply.

I bought the camera in 2015. So, it is only two years old.

The buttons function normally, except that the button has become a bit sticky. They feel ticky in a way that if I press the button and lift my finger, I feel a bit of stickiness on the surface. After using the buttons for less than five minutes, my finger feels a bit sticky by itself.

Is it possible that alcohol has damaged the surface of those two buttons, making it a bit nasty to operate? I sometimes quickly wipe(no time in the field, needed something swift and disposable to wipe off grease and dirt) the camera body using Zeiss lens wipe. Only recently, I started to notice this stickiness problem.

I have now used baby wipes to wipe those two buttons gently, but the stickiness remains.

Strangely, no other buttons, which have been in contact with this lens wipe, exhibit this behavior.

I understand this issue does not affect camera functionality, but it is a bit annoying.

Any ideas?
