Small oil leak

Hi, I have a 1993 Honda prelude SI 2.2 L Manual car. It has ab 190,000 miles on it. The car use to run great, but for ab a week or so, it has started to smoke up. After driving it for awhile I smelled something burning, when I looked under the car I noticed the exuast pipe wuz burning oil on top of it. And also, by the spark plugs. So I know the car is leaking oil. It seems like a small leak because only a couple of drops will go on the ground, the rest burns off. Is this a gasket problem? Or is it something else? And my friend said that if I pour this enigne cleaner with the oil it might be able to stop the leak. Could that work? If anyone has any idea how to make this stop that will be great, thanx.
Do you

It sound's to me that you are going to have to replace your valve cover gasket. Engine cleaner will not fix any oil leaks.

Ok thanx, but do u know around how much that would be. I know the part is around 30 dollars, but around how much is labor? And can I drive around with it for a lil while like that? Cuz all its doing is smoking when some oil gets on the exaust, but yet theres no puddle of oil under the car when it stops.
