May be seborrhoeic dermatitis..

I got a very flaky, oily and itchy scalp. If don't wash my hair with shampoo daily, it gets so worse that I can't stop myself scratching my head. I also have redness on my facial skin folds.

I can't consult to a dermatologist because there is  no dermatologist in my village.But here is a chemist's shop and he recommend me to apply "betnovate-n" cream on my scalp. It works to some extant(as my scalp becomes less flaky and itchy), but when I discontinue the application of this cream, the flakiness and itchiness starts again. This cream is a steroid based cream, that's why I am not using it now, as it may harm me more in a long run.
According to my symptoms, I think I am suffering from  seborrhoeic dermatitis.  
I want to treat this disease without using any steroid based products. If somebody has any idea how to treat it, please answer here.
