I waited for the skin to calis(can't spell) over but it's taking a long time. They've healed enough that it doesn't bleed or anything.

Any tips to keep my ankles stiff so that I don't have to wrap my laces around like that?

Should I try wrapping my ankle directly with tape before putting them on? Though this may be painful by pulling out hair, it might work.

Thanks in advance.

You either have wide feet/ankles, your skate is the wrong fit, or.. you're wearing the left skate on your right foot or something, because that is weird.
