Topical preparations made of animal, mineral or plant extracts were in common use in ancient Egyptian and Babylonian medicine by 3000 BCE. Humans have known for a very long time that products may be applied to the skin for either local or systemic effects, and as our understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the skin has improved, science has brought about the development of technologies to effectively and quantitatively deliver substances across this barrier to specific target sites in the skin and systemically in the body.

Lozenges are solid preparations that are intended to dissolve or disintegrate slowly in the mouth. They contain one or more medicaments usually in a flavored, sweetened base. Lozenges are most often used for localized effects in the mouth. They can also be used for systemic effect if the drug is well absorbed through the buccal lining or is swallowed. More traditional drugs used in this dosage form include phenol, sodium phenolate, benzocaine, and cetylpyridinium chloride. Newer drugs include analgesics, anesthetics, antiseptics, antimicrobials, antitussives, anti-nausants, and decongestants.
