This could be return of vulvar/ vaginal cancer,
This could be something as simple as estrogen deficiency causing Vaginal atrophy,
This could be VAginal Vault Prolapse
So - what you need to do, is have your ob/gyn evaluate you for all of this.
Most likely, this is vaginal atrophy, and Estrogen Cream such as Premarin will help, or using Climara Estrogen patch, or place Estradiol pill 10mg in your vagina a few times per week.

I'm using ESTRACE CREAM 3 times a week

Since you do not have a uterus - you can use estrogen daily without fear of getting cancer. But, I would check for the vaginal vault prolapse and possible return of the dysplasia/cancer.
