Recurring knee blister, fluid-filled. Have scar. What could this be?

I have a reoccuring bllistering on my knee that seems to have an onset about three days before my period. They have a substantial amount of fluid in them and only after they've busted open to I find any type of relief. I've gone to doctor several times but the affected area is always cleared up. I have a scar in the area now from this happening so much. Any ideas as to what this could be and why I'm getting it?
