Happens quite often. you need to replace the sprocket more often, as this is normally associated with wear & tear

There's a tiny hole on the front of the bar near the bar sprocket. This is used to grease the sprocket. If you go somewhere like Lowe's look in the chainsaw section and you'll find a grease tube that is specially designed to lube the front sprocket. Before lubing use a small wire to clean out any debris from the whole. Press the lube tube against the hole and push repeatedly until grease comes out from the outside of the bar. This should greatly extend the life of the bar.

If you've already tried to tighten the bar tensioning nuts and the bar keeps "creeping" and gets tighter, that is unusual, as most times the bar should get looser, not tighter.
I would suggest you try a new bar and set of tension nuts, or at the very least a new set of tension nuts first.
The problem might be the tip sprocket has worn out (it needs to be lubed every time you add bar & chain oil to the reservoir in the chainsaw). If the tip sprocket is worn badly, you should replace the bar and inspect the cutting chain for excessive wear on drive side of the chain.
Remember that the slightest bit of dirt can cause rapid wear of the bar and chain and quickly ruin it beyond repair.
I hope you find this helpful and best regards!
