Redness on penile glans..?

So, over a year ago I developped redness, slight, itch, and odour on my glans. This happened after unprotected sex. I have been tested (blood and urine tests) for STI's twice and they've come back negative. I was also told to start applying OTC yeast infection cream. While that cleared it up pretty quick, it always came back. A few months later I went back to the doc, and got prescribed steroid creams to take care of it. Those creams also worked, but now it's like my glans always has slight redness just above the urethra. It is very rarely itchy, no smell, no discharge. Skin seems dry from time to time but not always. No pain while urinating. I always wash down there with just water or sensitive skin soaps made without chemicals..etc. I want this to go completely.

Any suggestions? Is this probably contagious in a sexual sense?
Thanks for any help you can provide me with.

I recommend that you see your Dr again and be tested for both yeast and bacterial infections. If you have a bacterial infection you need antibiotics to clear it up. Yes, this can be passed from women to men just like a yeast infection.
Do you have a partner? I'm asking because if you do the two of you could be passing an infection back and forth. She would need to be tested too and if it shows that she has an infection she would need to be treated.
