Dandruff  many times is associated with folliculitis.  Appropriate antibiotic therapy along with anti dandruff  treatment  is required.  Nowadays many good  antifungal  lotions and shampoo are available  rather than traditional ones.  Consult dermatologist.  It will definitely help you.

Could be scalp acne. Treatment is long term antibiotic therapy or low dose isotreinoin. You may require microscopy or culture of pus from folliculitis lesion. Show to a nearby dermatologist to confirm diagnosis and start appropriate therapy.
