In brief: No problem...

Just rinse it out with a little warm water, pat ear dry and if you have a hair dryer that has an air dry setting, you can gently on low setting blow dry.
Otherwise just let it air dry after rinsing it out. Breast milk has such good antibodies in it, that it is not likely to cause any problems even if you do nothing. Thanks for breast feeding! be careful about co-sleeping...

In brief: Leave it on!

Breast milk is not only harmless to your newborn's skin but is actually good for it- people deliberately apply breast milk topically to treat eye infections, ear infections, rashes ; wound infections etc.
, so no need to do a thing... See http://bmsg.Tripod.Com/breastmilkuses.Htm.
