As a temporary remedy I would suggest buying a roll. It's around twenty bucks and you can get a few uses out of it and wear it for days at a time, it can get wet, bends with your skin and doesn't pinch or hurt. Kinesiology Tape | KT Tape Check it out here. I use it for my knees. But in the end, you need new boots or liners eventually. If you can try on guys boots too and see how they fit too.

Good luck and I hope you get more time on the mountain.
Salomon's quick lace system is the only one worth anyone's time.

I hear KT tape is worthwhile.

Sounds more and more like the OP needs to buy new boots.
