Seborrhoeic Dermatitis remedies?

I've been to my local doctor because I have a very red scalp, and when my hair is short (clippered) there's like red blotched marks near the back of my head. It also get's very itchy when I'm hot. My doctor said I have seborrhoeic dermatitis, and she prescribed me Ketopine shampoo, Cocois ointment, and neither have worked. At the moment I'm trying Polytar, but my scalp is still red.

Does anyone have any good remedies for seborrhoeic dermatitis? I just want my scalp white, lol. It looks even worse because I have naturally blonde hair so my scalp looks even worse on the crown. I've got no hair loss or anything... it's just a very red, horrible scalp.


EDIT: Just wanna point out, I'm pretty sure what I have is pretty mild... my scalp is just more inflamed. Slightly 'scabby' on the back of my head, but not much.
