What could cause extreme itching at the top of vagina during menopause and being on premia HRT?

Hi I Have been going through menapause. I am on premia HRT. My question is about the unberably itching I have at the top of my vagina. I do not use creams or soap because of this. I know it is not a yeast infection. I have use a lubricate to help with the dryness but still no relief.
