Thank you for posting your query.

The findings mentioned by you are indicative of infection. Gram positive cocci and gram negative bacilli are different types of bacteria.

The most common areas of body affected by these bacteria are throat and lungs; and less commonly the urinary tract.

The affected person needs to take a course of antibiotics (7-10 days) depending upon the severity of infection. Treatment is effective in curing the disease.

I hope it clarifies. Please get back if you have any more queries.
