In brief: It depends on cause
Like many symptoms, glossitis can have many causes.
It can be caused by iron deficiency or B12 deficiency, in which case those will help, but may be caused by allergies, infections and irritants, in which case no vitamin pill will get rid of it. Like all symptoms, it is important to find the cause and address it at that level. See http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0002048/ for more info.
