Minor scratches and swirls could be treated. But 'paint eroded completely' cases can't be treated. When you say eroded, do you see the metal beneath? If yes, it may require a paint job by experienced hands.

Pictures of your car would help here mate

I see the metal beneath. I was just wondering if any easy fix (touch up) has surfaced in recent past but looks like not. Thanks for your response

If you can see metal, you will see rust within a very short time... and a hole in a few weeks. Scratches and dents down to the primer can be left to look ugly, and repair done when convenient/affordable, but bare metal must be dealt with quickly.

This is not a job for a detailer, it is a job for tinker/paint specialists, or even your dealer. The later may be more expensive, but can (should!) be relied on to exactly match the paint with the manufacturer's paint. Mind you, after a few years, your car may not exactly match the original paint.
