Trouble removing shower stem

I removed my hot faucet handle. But the stem will not budge using a shower socket. And the bolt is now starting to strip. Any suggestions on how to loosen the stem without stripping it more. Thanks.

You can try applying heat or you can carefully tap down then up on the stem itself with a hammer to see if it will allow the stem to break free.
