depending on the size of the patches that came off it may be able to touch it up, if they are the size of a large stone chip it can be touched up but any bigger than a finger nail i would respray the entire thing. painting is tricky and time consuming and takes a lot of practice/experience to do it properly and make it look good, so i would take it to a body shop for that. to touch up small areas a common thing to use is nail polish that matches your paint color, just try and keep it inside the damaged area as much as possible and not go onto the good paint where possible.
