If the cold works and you got hot elseware in the bathroom, you can elimanite the shower head and the water heater as the problem. You need to find out if your getting pressure the the shower valve itself. Turn the water off to the water heater, take the handle and trim off the hot side of the shower valve, put the "stem"in the open position, using a socket remove stem from the valve which is in the wall cavity,,,now you got an open line from the feed pipe to the valve,,,turn the water on at the heater and see if you got any pressure.
If you have pressure here then the valve is bad you'll need to replace it,,,if no pressure here then you'll need to trace this hot line back and see what's plugging it.
