Is this a dual handle or single handle? if it is a single handle
turn the valve 180 degree. if not, then check the cold water supply line.

It sounds as though the valve is not closing and opening properly. I would have a proffesional come out to have a look. I could also be the control board not working correctly or a combination of both.

This sounds like a bad cartridge. They can be replaced. To replace the cartridge:
Turn off the water to the tub/shower.
Remove the handle cover (it should pop off)
Remove the center screw (usually phillips head)
Remove the retaining clip holding cartridge in - you can use a pair of long nose piers or a small screwdriver
Grab the cartridge with a pair of pliers and pull straight out. It may require a little force - there are O-rings around the cartridge to keep it from leaking.
Check the cartridge bore (the hole where the cartridge was removed)
Clean any debris or scale - lime away or CLR will work
Apply a little bit of soap around the new cartridge to help it slide in easier. Push it all the way in and make sure it is seated. Re-install the clip (you should have received a new clip with the replacement cartridge)
Turn the water back on a check for leaks
If OK, reinstall the knob screw, and cap.

Uue a 1/8" allen wrench to remove handle to access the dial that set's the mixture of water.Remember or mark where it is and remove and reinsert counter clockwise about a 1/4 turn to start to you reach desired temperature setting. Be careful not to set it at a hot enough setting to burn you.
Once dial in place slide handle on and turn on to check water temperature.
