aka aphthous stomatitis or aphthous ulcers

Bacteroidales seems to increase suseptibility (bacteroides and prevotella), while proteobacteria, Veillonella, and porphyromonas seem to cause the ulceration [1]

Gemella, Streptococcus, and prevotella (in chronic cases) implicated [2]

Strep and h pylori likely [3] [4]

Acinetobacter elevated [5]

Streptococcus sanguinis (formerly sanguis) and Streptococcus mutans likely implicated [6]. The way I interpret the paper is that there is streptococcus spp predominating the oral cavity which then get infected with epstein-barr which causes further exacerbation of the bacteria. Certain white blood cells get infected with the virus and are attacked by cytotoxic white blood cells.
