Faucet handle leak

The faucet handle on my kitchen sink has a slow drip. When I turn off the cold water valve under the sink it stops. I'm a new homeowner so I'm pretty green on this type of thing. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.

We have no picture, no info on what make, model or even what style it is.
Single handle, two handle?

You said "faucet handle leak". Is the water leaking from the handle or dripping out of the faucet's spout?

Trying to figure out how to work Dropbox. Hopefully this works. The water is dripping from under the handle. I drew an arrow to it.

Sorry I didn't include a picture originally. Thanks for the replies.

Remove the knob and escutcheon plate. There is probably a packing nut/ring that you can tighten.
