Phimosis: It is unlikely the infection was the cause of your phimosis. More likely you already had a certain amount of phimosis made worse by inflammation and scarring. There may be effective treatments other than complete circumcision, but not a good idea to treat yourself with steroid. Anyway, OTC steroid creams are weak and probably wouldn't help. See a urologist and follow his or her advice.
