Scalp folliculitis should resolve to antibiotics. Sometimes fungal follculitis is the cause and anti-fungals helps. A good way is to get a pus cultre and sensitivity done to identify the exact causative organism and treat accordingly. A decolonisation regimen exist and your doctor for the details to prevent recurrences.
