Can fruit flies or drain flies infect humans ?

Hello I just moved into an apartment a week ago. Before I moved I noticed a bunch of little black gnats in the tub and they were dead. Didn’t think much of it. To get to the point there seemed to have been a problem with the pipes in the apartment and now there are lots of drain gnats that don’t seem to go away. They are all over the house and no matter how many I kill they still keep coming. Maybe I’m just being paranoid now, but last night when I was sleeping I woke up because my ear was very itchy and I’m thinking one of those thing came in my ear and layed eggs or something. Lol I’m just curious can these drain gnats be harmful?

    Yes. They can lay eggs on stuff you have open that you eat.
