Damaged frame?

My chain fell off the bike this morning and jammed between the chainrings and chainstay.

I have since managed to get things looking reasonable, and there is no obvious reason for the failure (I will investigate it properly tomorrow).

Only thing is that the chain has stripped away the paint and exposed the shiny metal underneath.

Is this something that I should be worried about or is it OK to just leave it? The frame is alu so corrosion should not be an issue, but my knowledge with frame damage ends about there..

Thanks in advance.

    it is a common happening and is not really anything to worry about.
