You have not offered much info for us to offer assistance. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Are you turning the stem clockwise or counter-clockwise?

An outside hose bib costs about $5 at a big box store, $15 if you want the frost free type. In my book, it makes little economic sense to try and fix a $5 part, unless you have a lot of time and energy. I suggest you shut the water supply off, buy a new hose bib, cut the old one off, and install the new one.
