What could be the cause of excessive itchiness on the neck ?

I am a 38 years old female and of normal weight for my height . I have been taking microgynon 30 for the past 9 months. Recently my neck skin has become very itchy. There is no rash at all. I visited my doctor who prescribed hydrocortisone 1% cream. I have been using this cream 3 times a day for the past week. This has not helped my itchiness at all. What colud be causing this itchiness?
