Default Bad Luck! Paint Chip Remedies?

hello everyone!

i've had some of the worst luck with my car these past 3 weeks.
Idk wtf this is

This is pool water + chemicals + water + God knows wtf else was in it





Then I got it fixed through a claim and my car was 100 again.


And then THIS ****** happened today:




I knooooow the chips are soo small but the chips seem deep. I'm just overall pissed and super bummed out because 1) I just got my car detailed on Monday and 2) my car is barely 4 months old. Anyway, enough about my rant, the main point of this post is to ask for suggestions for repair? Should I see someone or is there some magical home remedies that can eliminate this?

Thanks plenty!

some stealerships use some local companies that only fix nicks like yours with paint pens. can try that but of course, going be able to tell. that's the cheapest alternative

I'd keep an eye on aircraft traffic, that looks like some sort of chemical attack on the paint.
