Slow Leak Bottom Of Diff Pumpkin

I drilled and tapped for a drain plug and it has a slow leak. If I wipe and glean carefully with diff full of gear oil, is there anything I can paint or slather over the area to stop this slow leak. Something non hardening. I don't want to cement it just to cover with sealant.

Or clean everything up with brake cleaner, install a light coat of Grey RTV (Oil proof) on the threads before threading the plug into the housing. Give it a little time (few hours) to set up and then add the oil.

Like Steven said, pipe dope or teflon tape. Your diff has a vent so it shouldn't build any pressure.
