Oil pressure switch leak?

I just saw this while doing my oil change the other day. Seems to be leaking. I tighten it up but seems to be leaking still. Anyone have this leak before? Do I just replace the sensor or is there something else to it? No lights or issues. Just a slow leak.

Don't replace the oil pressure switch if the leak isn't that bad

Yep, that's your oil pressure switch. Whatever you do, DO NOT buy one from O'Reilly's. It will continue to leak. I replaced mine, and now it leaks even worse. Replaced a couple of hours ago with OEM switch... same result . The tech at the dealership said to use pipe dope and not tape, and it is a gradual thread. If it isn't leaking too bad I would just leave it be or you may be in the same boat as me. I don't want to over tighten it, but I'm running out of ideas at this point.
