Bathroom light fixture

First off house was built in 2005. We bought it in 2015 and noticed it soon after buying. 1 light on a 4 light fixture in bathroom would flicker and then go out fairly often . We have always used led bulbs. I figured a poor connection so I replaced the fixture and it seemed to work for a while. Now the same thing is happening again. What am I missing? TIA

Yes. One still starts to flicker shortly after replacing it. It never lasts more than a few weeks. All other bulbs are good and are the ones I put in when I changed fixture.

Experiment a little. Is it the same fixture of the four? What happens if you only use 3 bulbs? Switch the three bulbs from fixture to fixture. What happens if you use incandescent bulbs? What brand of LED's are you using, What happens if you use three LED's and one filament bulb? What else might be on that same circuit? Is there any possibility of a short or loose connect to that one fixture?

Is the fixture on a dimmer? Does the switch turn on anything else like an exhaust fan?
