Agree with everyone here - you can.

5 months Vs 4.5 years of experience is noticeable but not significant.

Expect to be asked about it in interview (or put an explanation of what you learned in that time away in your resume) and then go ahead and start making applications.

Any problems you do encounter with getting the job you desire will be for reasons other than this 5 month gap!

Good luck!
