Dried paint drips

I'm repainting a wall. I used a razor to cut off some old paint drips but I'm left with a rough surface where they were. I tried sanding but it didn't help. When I paint over this I'm afraid it's going to look jagged. Is there any way to smooth this out?
Thanks

Joint compound, then more sanding.

Yep, either j/c or spackling is needed to fill in those low spots. After drying the repair will need sanding and priming.
