Seton stitch

I've been battling a deep abscess for years. After 2 surgeries a new surgeon put in a steton stitch. It's been 6 weeks and still draining. Basically I need some advice. Any ideas on how to pad the end. It moves when I move or catches on my clothes and... well I think I've invented some new words. Anyone have advice

I have draining setons,two of them. I use 4x4 gauze pads for drainage. If the drainage is not to heavy I open the pads(they are four ply) and cut them in half,gives me twice as many pads.
