You will have to be more clear on the problem. Is the water leaking out of the shower head when the faucets are off? Or is it spraying out of the back of the shower head while using the shower? Do you get water on the outside of the shower while using shower? Do you get water on the outside of the tub if shower is not used (if this is a shower/tub combination)?
May be able to help you, but each have a little different way of dealing with the problem.

Could you still be more specific about your problem(s), as Trying2Help said?
If water is dripping out of your showerhead while the water is OFF, you have a faucet leak problem.
If water is spraying from where the showerhead connects to the shower arm while ON, then that is a simple connection problem easily corrected with teflon tape.
If your shower floor pan is leaking when the shower is ON, or if you have a constant leak inside the wall, then those are other problems entirely.
Please give us more info.
