Shower valve shutoff screws leaking

The water shutoff screws in my shower valve are slowly dripping. What is the best way to repair this? Replace screws? Teflon tape? Etc.

What is the name of these screws (valves)?

Thank you for any help

Have you tried to tighten the packing nut? This is where I would start my process of elimination to correct the leak.
