I think the answer is:

Butterfly

My prefix is a guilty pleasure.

Butter -> butter tastes wonderful, but you shouldn't eat too much.

My suffix is a nasty thing.

Fly -> a fly is a nasty thing.

My infix is in total measure.

utter -- meaning complete; absolute.

My whole comes out in spring.

Butterflies appear in the spring.

My answer is probably not right because of the infix part, but the other 3 fit so well I thought I should share it.

Cheatgrass
Prefix and suffix are slangs, pretty self explanatory
I don't really understand the infix condition, but either heat can be used as a unit of measure, or you can only measure the total heat of a reaction (not really true)?
Cheatgrass is a plant that germinates in either the winter or spring

I think the answer is

Sparrow

My prefix is a guilty pleasure.

Spa = a commercial establishment offering health and beauty treatment through such means as steam baths, exercise equipment, and massage.

My suffix is a nasty thing.

Row = a noisy acrimonious quarrel.

My infix is in total measure.

Par = an amount taken as an average or norm (there are several other relevant definitions of the word par which can be applicable here).

My whole comes out in spring.

Sparrows appear to "come out" (be more frequently seen) in the springtime through a combination of migratory behaviour and a tendency to shelter for warmth during the winter season.

A tooth can be nasty when it is removed.

EET TOOT is in TOTal mEasurE
