Yeast/bacterial infection cleared up but now caused phimosis- is there anything I can do to improve this other than being circumsized? Steroid cream?

In brief: 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.
