it looks like a thermostatic valve requiring a new thermostat behind the hot handle.
you will need to find the make and model of the showervalve, sometimes on the chrome behind.
it may be a long shot or new valve unfortuanately.
if you turn off the hot and cold supplies you can easily remove the 2 chrome back nts to remove the shower. there is also a filter behind this you can check for blockage.
the hot handle comes off with an allen key usually.
