What causes median rhomboid glossitis?

Hi, I have had median rhomboid glossitis for two years now. One doctor told me it is caused by stress and/or hormone imbalance another told me it is from smoking. I am a light smoker and have been for some time. This condition did not respond to mouthwash. Why will this not heal and what do you think is the cause?
