Unhappy A stripped screw on a leaking outdoor faucet

My faucet is leaking at the handle and I have used the site to find out how to fix it but the screw that holds down the handle is stripped and I cant get it off. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to get the screw off. I thought this was going to be an easy fix (ha,ha). Thanks, Sandra B.

Kill the water going to the faucet and unscrew the big nut underneath the handle. Replace rubber washer, reinstall big nut. Should stop the leak...
