Has Estrace irritated your vagina

I'm 55, had hysterectomy 6 years and never went on hormones. I asked my dr. about a cream for dryness down there, and she prescribed 2 grams of Estrace cream a night for 2 weeks, then once a week. Used it for 8 days and started getting lightheaded after about the 4th day. So after 8 days of using it and thinking it may be causing the lightheadedness, I stopped. The lightheadedness has stopped.

I have felt irritated off and on since then. Doesn't burn or itch -- just an irritation. Has anyone else had this happen? And what did you do??
