Get hold of one of these:

Rub out the corrosion with that, to be sure its treated try and get some rust treatment (Hammerite Krust is good) dab that on then let it dry, this will prevent the rust returning by neutralizing the metal.

Now just touch up the chip(s) and you'll be golden.

Out of curiosity, what is covered when rust is not a result of paint chipping? I have some near the bottom of my door seal, no chips.

when it bubbles up from underneath as a result of a paint defect
