Minor carbon repair suggestions

The surface material of a 2013 tarmac carbon frame at the skewer drop out has chipped off a little, from wear and tear

Can anyone suggest a coating to bond and repair this? Does anyone have an opinion if I should be concerned since I am not ?

Thanks for the consideration

Is it just the paint or are we talking a structural chip that broke or frayed some carbon fibers? If it’s just a cosmetic/paint thing, some mail polish will do the trick.

Just the surface coating, but it is surprisingly thick, 1-2 mm, at the rear drop out, no carbon fiber showing, I’m thinking I’d like to spray something on that self levels and bonds??

Yeah, the paint layer can be surprisingly thick. I got a big chip out if the paint in my fork last year and was shocked how thick the primer layer was.
