Default Leaking Shower Faucet

I have hot water leaking from my shower/tub faucet. It is a 3 handle faucet and the leak comes out of the spigot. There is no leak at the handle. What could be the issue? Is it the hot water handle or the middle selector handle? How do i go about fixing it? I have lived in my house for 5 years and have no idea what brand the fixtures are, no brand name anywhere. Please help!!

thanks for the reply, but i went to lowes and got a replacement. Their book is awesome!!! hold up old to find length, try handle style to get gnarl and find it in the book. I installed the new one withing 10 minutes, but now my tub does not turn all the way off when the shower is on and the middle handle has a lot more travel. Does the new stem cause the diverter to be off? the leak out of the faucet while the shower is on is scalding hot. causes the hot and cold handles to be way off what they were. should i replace the middle stem too?

You should not have went to lowes. That word is forbidden in our shop. I guess you'll have to ask "the plumbing professionals" there.

WOW!! I didnt receive one bit of help from anyone there. I had enough confidence in myself that i could match old for new. Only good thing, besides them providing me with a book so they didnt have to help, is that its 10 mins away. Had new swapped out from start to finish within an hour. Only having one bathroom that is essential.

Us non-professionals don't have the wholesale parts houses available to us, so we are forced to frequent both Home Depot and Lowe's quite often... and I'm not ashamed of it one bit!

Havasu, the Pro's also go to the big box stores every now and then.
