Crack Near Corner of Foundation

Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone has had similar looking cracks in their foundation. Here is both sides of the back corner of my house. Is this a DIY fixing job or if I should have someone to come look at it? I appreciate any advice.

Top picture looks like the parging is cracking and needs to be redone.

No reason not to diy although you should keep an eye on it just to rule out any foundation issues. If there is an unfinished basement you can tell a lot from the inside.

the house has a basement so I can't see anything from there. I'll redo the parging part in the one picture, its the other picture that's a bit concerning.

I'd go ahead and remove any loose, maybe scratch out the cracks some where it's solid and restucco. Keeping an eye on in just insures if there is an underlying problem with the foundation you''ll become aware of it. The odds are the foundation is ok.
