You don't want me on your head.

Are you:

COMEDO

My prefix prefix was a clown

Coco Bobo was a famous clown, (Thanks @hexomino)
From your double use of prefix I think the actual prefix is CO

My infix infix gets around

Using my thinking from the previous clue, I think this is Meme,
as they are spread around a lot. And therefore the infix would be ME

My suffix suffix is long dead

The Dodo bird has been famously extinct for a while,
Making the suffix DO

A hairy black or white problem

A comedo is a clogged hair follicle, which can cause white heads or black heads. (Thanks @SecretSquirrel) And you don't want them on your face.

    $\begingroup$ I think the answer might be instead rot13(pbzrqb). Would feel bad writing a separate answer as you are so close. $\endgroup$ – hexomino Oct 5 '18 at 10:07

    $\begingroup$ if think rot13(vg pbhyq or n oynpx urnq be n juvgr urnq) as the answer is another word for a rot13(pybttrq cber) $\endgroup$ – Secret Squirrel Oct 5 '18 at 10:21
  • $\begingroup$ @hexomino & SecretSquirrel thanks for the help figuring out the final stretch :) $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Oct 5 '18 at 10:55
