PDP 8E Panel Paint Chipping - How to seal edges

The cause of my panel chipping is very much finger contact at the edge of the cut panel. There is the decay starting at the edge above all the switches and it is worse above the "deposit" switch.

The rest of the panel other than these edges seems properly intact, but I am worried about sealing off the flakey edges so environmental humidity, etc doesn't continue to permeate through the fragmented edges of the paint.

I don't understand why the operator felt the need to get their oily paws all over the panel when toggling, the edge of the switch is sufficient, but that is spilled milk. ;)
