Considering how quickly my last Riley Riddle was solved I thought I'd try again.

my prefix causes you trouble
my suffix people have double
my infix you find swimming
this can stop you from dripping

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Could the suffix be Rot13(evat)? Because you can wear that (1) on your evat finger (2), hence double :P $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 19 '18 at 10:09

An ink blotter.

Prefix:

A blot or stain might get you in trouble with your mom

(I'm not sure how the suffix part works)

Infix:

an otter you find swimming and a blotter stops ink from running or dripping.

Could it be

Pottering.

Prefix:

Pot. Gets you in trouble.

Infix:

Otter. Swims.

Suffix:

Ring. The only one not sure about. Perhaps "people have double" because you often buy two rings, like in marriage?
