Unhappy Toyota paint repair help (with pics)

Hello everyone, I have a green 01 Camry that was hit from the bumper. The dent and the scratches are okay but here you can see where the paint is peeling off completely, the yellow thing exposed is bare plastic or whatever the bumper material is. I want to fix it ASAP so it doesn't get bigger any help is appreciated

That sounds right, but isn't that bare plastic? so I need primer -> touch-up paint -> clear coat?

Probably, but for something so small on a fairly well used car, I wouldn't be too concerned.
