grcing2, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
You may have the type that just screws into the piping. Look into the drain and see if there is a "cross" made of metal going across the drain. They make a tool for unscrewing this type drain. You shouldn't need to unscrew it all the way. Just enough to be able to push a ring of Plumbers putty under the flange in the shower and then tighten it back down. Good luck.
You can also use silicone caulk but don't over-do it and get sloppy. It's a pain to remove too much extra.
