How do I know if my scalp folliculitis is improving? I'm using medicated shampoo which reduces the itching but there's still pus and skin flaking.

In brief: Consult PCP

you may need both oral antibiotics and topical skin antibiotics.
The shampoo was not not specified, but medicated shampoo is always helpful.
