Brief Answer:
Aloe vera is fine

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

There is no need to worry, The molar tooth are the ones present behind they do come very later in 2nd year. I see that the central incisors have erupted. The rest will surely come in a month or two. The dental development seems normal.

Yes, you can apply Aloe vera cream or Calamine lotion to the affected skin.

Wish you good health.
