Khloe Kardashian’s family is “very concerned” about her staph infection, though they’re not “freaking out” or in a “panic” to the extent that it’s been reported elsewhere. We’re told Kardashian is resting, as ordered by her doctor, and is on antibiotics.

According to TMZ, Kardashian’s family is in a “panic” and “freaking out” about her staph infection. The site explains that Kris Jenner’s dad, Robert Houghton, had a staph infection when he died in 1975, having picked it up in a hospital in Mexico, where he was taken following a car accident that ultimately claimed his life.

And while it’s true that Kim Kardashian cannot visit her younger sister because she’s pregnant and there’s always a chance of infection, Gossip Cop is told the level of fear is not as dramatic as portrayed. A source tells us Khloe Kardashian’s family is “obviously very concerned,” but she’s a “real trooper” and following her doctor’s instructions.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Kardashian contracted the infection while visiting Lamar Odom at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. And while the bacterial infection is causing her great pain in her leg and has left her sick with swollen glands, her rep told us, She is getting treatment and will be OK.”
