Has anyone noticed red looking gnats around them after lots of sugar?

I don’t know why, but when I eat a lot of sugar or ice cream I draw these tiny, reddish, brown flying things that look like gnats.

You probably mean fruit flies (Drosophilidae). Maybe you have Candida overgrowth which produces a sugar called arabinose which then ends up in your sweat and attracts these flies. You could try some high dosed sodium selenite for some weeks which is antifungal.
