Replace the faucet   

Often the leak is caused by worn or cracked rubber seals. If the leak is coming from the spout, this could be the cause. The O-ring inside the faucet may also be damaged, causing a leak. Changing the O-ring should fix the problem. If it still isn't working, you may need to replace the faucet. You can also buy a new one if you notice more leaking. The springs or seats inside the faucet can be causing the leak. Oftentimes, they will need to be replaced because they've become worn over time. If this is the case, try replacing the springs by inserting the head of a screwdriver into the holes. Once you've removed the rubber rings, replace the seals and rubber seats. If none of these methods work, you can try replacing the springs.

Otherwise, the repair will be more expensive than replacing the cartridge. If this doesn't solve the problem, you'll need to spend a little money.
