Khloé Kardashian's staph infection was "exacerbated by stress".
The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star has revealed the illness she is currently battling - which she is thought to have picked up whilst visiting her estranged husband Lamar Odom in hospital - has only been made worse by the stresses she currently has.
She wrote on Twitter: "Staph infection is no joke. Mine was exacerbated by stress which is not a great combo. I'm under great medical care&receiving tons of love!
"Please everyone take care of yourselves and pay attention to your bodies!! Be kind and loving to one another! It goes a long way!!
"I appreciate all of your prayers, well wishes and love being sent my way. I'll be better very soon. I love you guys (sic)"
Meanwhile, the 31-year-old television personality previously hit out at a fan who claimed she should choose between her boyfriend James Harden and Lamar.
In the rant, which she later blamed on her "antibiotics and painkillers", she said: "You should have said those to the man who went against all our vows. Judge yourself. F**k off ... Divorce is still going forward. Doesn't mean I won't be there through sickness and health. I've proven that. Stop believing everything you read. Not my place to clear up every rumor. I think I know what I'm doing in my life. (sic)"
