Khloe got staph infection at hospital treating Lamar: report
It looks like doctors will be keeping up with Khloe Kardashian for the foreseeable future.
The reality star is currently battling a painful staph infection that she picked up at the Los Angeles hospital where husband Lamar Odom was being treated, TMZ is reporting.

The 31-year-old Kardashian’s symptoms reportedly include a fever, swollen glands and a lesion on one of her legs. She’s also said to be sweating a lot, and experiencing sporadic chills.
Khloe Kardashian reportedly contracted a staph infection at the hospital treating Lamar Odom, forcing her to cancel a book signing.
“It’s so scary,” an insider told TMZ. “She’s so sick.”
A source close to Kardashian downplayed the severity of her ailment to the Daily News, however.
“Khloe has an minor infection and is being treated by her doctors,” the source said. “She is run down as she has been burning the candle at both ends. She will be fine but needs some rest.”
The reality star has spent much of the past month inside the Cedars Sinai Medical Center to visit Odom, who was found unconscious and frothing at the mouth after a drug overdose at a Nevada brothel last month.

Odom has made considerable progress since he was rushed to the hospital on Oct. 13, as he emerged from his coma four days later and is no longer on machines that help his organs function.

He does, however, still have a ways to go. During an interview with Ellen Degeneres, Kardashian said he’s still struggling to speak and currently learning to walk and feed himself again.
Kardashian canceled a book signing on Wednesday as doctors attempted to figure out what was ailing her — but she seemed to believe stress had caused her illness.
“I’ll be going for more testing today,” she wrote on Twitter. “I’m very sorry again. Stress can run our bodies down so please everyone take care of yourselves.”
