Prantal powder used to be used with great results - particularly with amputees - but it seem that is no longer readily available here is a link to Chemist Warehouse page listing their replacement/alternatives. www.chemistwarehouse.com.au/buy/40669/Prantal-Powder-120g
Perhaps prantal powder is available from one of the overseas shopping sites.

 

Found local compound https://www.bordercompounding.com.au/home/blog-posts/skin-conditions/prantal-powder-replacement/

also Drugs.com suggest it may be available in New Zealand

You have not said what is causing the itching but after being attached by sandflies and trying stingose and calamine lotion for 2 weeks the advice that I received from the chemist was to try haemorehoid cream. Worked a treat.

Animine - anaesthetic & antiseptic Anti-Itch lotion.   Contains Calomine and lidocaine for some numbing as well.

my first thought would be what is causing the itch, reaction to some thing or bites

Itchy skin can be from insects......sandflies, mossies, bed bugs or fleas.....deal with them

Can be from allergies to insect bites etc .....chemist if its minor....doctor if its not

Can be from your dermatitis, eczema or psoriasis,....creams, but might not be easy

Can be from liver disease, kidney toxins or some cancers and jaundice......doctor

Dry skin from dry air or dehydration...drink more and use moisturisers.

Found this in Hahndorf. SA

It certainly helps.

I have also found some products from Saarinen Organics in Wyndham NSW helpful.

Ive had blood test etc and all is good.
