It sounds like your original .bib file is not located in the same directory as your .tex file.
In that case, when you add a new entry and save it, it is being saved in whatever directory your .bib was originally created in.
You may want to save a current version to the directory with your .tex file, close the .bib file in BibDesk, and then double click on the .bib file in your .tex directory.
Future updates to that .bib file will be saved in the correct folder, and you won't have to "re-export" the file any longer.
You WILL have to remember to save your .bib file after you add any entries to your .bib and cite them in your .tex file.
