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.

What am I?

  • $\begingroup$ 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.

    $\begingroup$ Otter is actually forming the "suffix" , not the "infix" . This should be an altogether wrong approach. $\endgroup$ – Anonymous Apr 28 at 14:22

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?

I think the answer is:

feelings

my prefix causes you trouble

fee -- fees give people trouble.

my suffix people have double

lings -- is close to lungs. People have double lungs.

my infix you find swimming

eel -- a type of fish.

this can stop you from dripping

you go to the bathroom when your feelings tell you you need to.
