Is it good idea to use repair tape to block water from constantly dripping?u

My faucet in the shower started to drip. Till the plumber coming to fix it I thought to mitigate a bit by shutting off the pipe.
I bought a tape similar to repair tape.
So if I put tape in the faucet (and remove it to turn on the water when I need to) would it cause a problem? Would the fact that these drips are not released but blocked make things worse?
