How would you dress a wound on the armpit ?

i had an abscess a little off from the center of my armpit that i got drained today, and the dressing the nurse put on it gets pushed down by my arm. I m thinking because it s too thick, but could be wrong. My question is, how would you dress a wound on the armpit.
