You are:

Disappointment

My infix will give you a name

To appoint someone as leader means to name him or grant him the name "leader"

My suffix will help you with pain

Ointment as in medicine

My prefix will make you frown

Dissapointing someone will make them frown (or at least sad)

My whole will let you down

Dissapointment will let you down, that's what it means
