What is the problem when my shower fluctuates from hot to cold and back to hot again?

The problum is it's uncomfortable to shower after that.
Or it could be the anti scald valve needs to be cleaned out because there's some trash in it.
Every company designs there's differant so you may have to first figure what brand you have then go on line to see how to fix it.

The most obvious cause is a water heater that is too small coupled with not being first in line to take a shower.
