Give the case a good airing and treat with some kind of antifungal agent - chances are the case lining has become damp and mould has formed there and spread to the instrument.

Let the case dry fully and use a vacuum cleaner with the nozzle and also brush attachment to give the fabric a good clean as well.

The oboe itself is best stripped down completely (but not removing the pads or key corks), cleaned up and left for a few days before assembling. Basically it will have to be serviced.
