Greetings.  Sure i understand that scalp folliculitis can be irritating and painful apart from just being chronic. While anti biotics will help we need to get to that crux of why this is happening. We may need pus cultures from the lesion.  Also certain measures to prevent recurrence need to be instituted. Avoid using oils on scalp. See a  qualified dermatologist near you. Warm regards.
