Shower water switching from hot-cold


I am wondering what could be causing my shower problem...I'm thinking possibly the mixing valve..but would like more input.

-When showering, water switches from hot to cold every few seconds throughout the shower.
-This does not occur with any other hot water faucet in the house
-Does not change with other faucet/toilet running/flushing

I live in a single story home with PVC pipe throughout- if there is other types of plumbing anywhere, I am not aware of it.

Thanks!

You mixing valve has an anti -scald feature--it has failed---

Replace the cartridge or the defective part---let us know the brand and someone will walk you through it if you will be doing it yourself---
