In brief: Yes but....

Four month olds don't usually require calamine lotion.
Depending on what you are treating, other options may be more appropriate.

In brief: Yes

Topical use (on the skin) of Calamine lotion is not a problem, even in kids with G6PD deficiency.
Make sure no large areas of open skin, though.
