How Do I Repair Leaking Shower Head Hose Attachment?

I have a shower head with a hose attachment that sprays water where the hose attaches to the faucet. Tightening the connection does not help. How do I stop the spray?

Generally there is a rubber gasket inside the nut that tightens onto the shower head arm. Often this gasket gets damaged or pushed into the shower head arm and does not seal properly. To make this shower faucet repair, simply remove and reinsert the gasket, or replace for a better seal.
