I have 3 handles in my shower, hot cold and shower. When I turn my shower on water comes out of the hot and cold handles. How do I fix this?

Sounds like you need to pull the faucet handles and replace the O-rings or bushings in them. This likely only happens with the shower because it puts more pressure into the system, but over time you'll probably see it start to happen regardless of whether the shower is on or not. –  Comintern Mar 15 '14 at 23:59
