Taxier Syndrome - toxic reaction to Vitamin K1

My dermatologist has identified that I am suffering from Taxier Syndrome due to a toxic reaction to Vitamin K1. It is a skin condition and I am desperately seeking more information on the syndrome or the side effects of Vitamin K1.

A red circle appears where one is injected about 2 weeks after the injection. Later a white ring with another red outer ring appears and it itches. The ring spreads to later cover a larger area and is hot to the touch and slightly swollen. After another 2 weeks itchy spots appear on the rest of the body - a reaction to the area of injection. These areas are also itchy. It is a very rare condition and usually, but not always, occurs with people who have a liver dysfunction. There is also no way of treating this, except for a lotion to help relieve the itching.
