What Diesel said....
I work out chest and shoulders on different days. In fact, my workout routine is structured so my chect and shoulder days are as far apart as possible to give them enough time to recuperate.
Mon : Chest
Tues: Upper back
Fri: Arms (biceps/triceps)
Plenty of time for shoulders to recuperate before doing chest and plenty of time for shoulders to recupe from any stress they got on my chest day before I work them directly...

Whats your training experience to date ?.
I would have asked you the same questions as Diesel did, but you train your shoulders the day after so that rules that idea out.
If you can't resolve the problem soon and it's affecting your chest routine badly I'd suggest pre-exhausting your chest with either light pec deck work or cable X overs than hit your flat bench.

like bouncer said try an isolation movement to pre-exhaust the chest. Also don't slam the weight down to your chest, this causes the shoulders to bear a majority of the burden. Ease it down and just barely tap your chest then explode up.
