Unhappy repairing damaged sheetrock due to wallpaper removal

I am in the process of removing wallpaper, while the job has not been too terrible. I have noticed that when ripping some of the wall paper up. It looks like I've taken the top coat of some of the sheetrock in some very small areas. What should I do to treat these areas, I plan to skim coat & prime the areas before I paint. Should I do anything else to seal the moisture out. The room is very large and I am about half way done. I am trying to be careful to not mess the sheet rock but it has been unavoidable in some areas.

skim coat is the solution

The skim coat is the recommended solution.

Use quality primer, paint, and tools.
