Shower Head Dripping

I have a shower head in the master bathroom that keeps dripping. I was thinking it was the actual head but starting thinking about it and pondering that it could be the on/off valve. Anyone know what could be causing the continuous dripping?

More than likely it is the valve. What type do you have? It could be something as simple as an "O" ring on a valve stem that is relatively easy to replace.

It is a delta.

Single handle or double handle? Single handles have a cartridge that uses cup washers to do the sealing. Sometimes the entire cartridge needs to be replaced. Double handles use flat or cone washers. Both are easy to repair.
