Question: '98 Oldsmobile Intrique Oil Leak

The '98 Intrique has a V-6 engine. It leaks several drops of oil only after the car has been running (and probably when the car is running). The leak is not at the oil plug. It is up higher, just inside the right wheel. I tried 10w-40w oil (up from 10w-30) but that didn't help. Do you think 20w-50 oil would help, or should I just have some seals replaced? The car has 88,000 miles on it and has not been run aggressivley.
