White patch on tongue, taking corticosteroids for my asthma

Hi, I have this white patch on my tongue and I m sure it s not candida nor stomach problems, I should mention that I ve been taking corticosteroids for my asthma for almost 12 years and I have this white coat on my tongue since I can remember. I also have extremely fissured tongue. I brush my tongue and teeth 2-3 times per day so I don t think I have higenic problems.... please help (I miconazole and probiotics for a long time to treat my problem but they never did, and this white coat is only on my tongue and it increases and decreases in size a little bit but it never fades from the root
