My doctor confirmed I have a UTI but why do I have vaginal itching?

I started experiencing vaginal itching and burning while I pee a week ago. I thought it was a yeast infection so I got prescribed Diflucan but I was still experiencing symptoms so I was prescribed an antifungal cream. The lab results confirmed I have a UTI and didn't find anything with the vaginal swab. I'm confused because I thought UTIs didn't cause itching. The itching is only inside my vaginal canal not on the outside. If I don't have BV or a yeast infection, then why am I itching?
