Glute exercises. You need to strengthen the opposing muscle group. Bridges and clams are the way to go. I did these, plus weekly massage from physic when I injured mine.

Plus things like not sitting crossed legged or crunched up in bed, basically avoiding anything that makes you contract your hip flexor unless essential, including general good posture/core exercises. It's difficult to get rid of and took a long time, and still niggles if I get slack with exercises.

Good luck!
