I have scalp folliculitis and have gone off a year of antibiotics for it. It is still reoccurring though mild and localised. Will I outgrow it?

In brief: Maybe

Some people become colonized by staph in their scalp.
The use of antibacterial soap mixed with your shampoo will decrease the bacteria. Oral vitamin c and bovine colostrum are options to stimulate the white blood cells to help prevent follicultis.
