Question What kind of damage is this to the concrete block?

This concrete block is in the garage, right next to a man door, and is foundation for the garage wall I believe. What kind of damage or wear does this look like? How would you stop this "erosion" ? repair it and prevent further?

Looks like normal wear to me. I'd remove any loose paint with a wire brush and apply a couple of coats of paint. Had you repainted a few yrs ago you wouldn't have even noticed.

In the bottom right of the concrete, the block has worn away by a few inches. Any way to repair that?

You could stucco/mortar over the block but it will always look like a repair.
