February 20, 2013 – It’s easy keeping up with Kim Kardashian these days, because everything she does airs on her E! Reality Shows. On Monday night’s episode of Kim & Kourtney Take Miami, the reality star found out she was allergic to cats. Dr. Philip Mirmelli, of Florida Center For Allergy & Asthma Care, conducted her allergy tests and made the discovery.
“This has been a very active allergy and flu season. As many patients’ allergies are triggered following an infection, our office has seen an increased number of allergy sufferers,” said Dr. Mirmelli.
Kardashian braved the allergen “pricks” to find out what was making her sniffle. With the early arrival of Spring Allergy season in full effect, this is the perfect time to tackle those allergies.
