The weeping burn sites are likely due to tiny dead space underneath the superficial tissue. This keeps on secreting the body fluids. A minor procedure of removing the thin later of skin, and dressing with saline soaks should be able to stop the oozing and heal it completely around 2 weeks.
Your hip pain is likely to be hip osteoarthritis, which is degenerative disease of joint (age related changes). You would need MRI of the hips which will ascertain the severity of the changes in joint. An advanced arthritis (which means severe pain, night pain, continuous pain) would need total hi replacement. Since your pain gets better on lying down this may or may not be advanced arthritis. Apart from the analgesic you are taking; following would help you, meanwhile;
1) Physical therapy; this is the mainstay of the management of the osteoarthritis. Stretching exercises, strengthening exercises, mild weight bearing exercises, swimming on the week-ends etc would be helpful.
2) Deep electrotherapy; this entails going to physical therapy center and take care of specific issues which are more painful.
3) Glucosamine and chondroitin supplements
4) Diacerin too can be tried which suppose to regenerate the cartilage.
5) Local analgesic sprays
6) Mild massage
7) Consideration of hyaluronic acid injection in the joints. Some physician may inject steroid too for the pain relief.
8) Warm shower in morning would open up the joints.
9) Capsaicin (Zostrix, ArthriCare) is an irritant derived from chili peppers that provide relief by depleting a chemical that transmits pain from nerve endings. Various strengths are available without prescription. (It causes a burning sensation thus one has to be careful while applying and should wear a disposable plastic glove).
10) Acupuncture; most popular forms of alternative or complementary medicine, particularly for pain relief.
11) Analgesic patches too are available for the pain relief.
I would also suggest an MRI of the spine or lower back. Sometimes pinched nerves in back are the concomitant cause of the hip pain and that should be ruled out.
