I know it's probably not what you want to hear but most of what your bro was saying is right. Trust me, I know what it's like to feel the disgusting horrible and unattractive & all that, got 'diagnosed' with BDD and used to find it impossible to leave the house in the daytime, and most of the time still do. Also I too got bullied by my bro's, but thats kids. For what it's worth, your skin looks good in your photos.
I know you have said you'd like to chat to a therapist or a doctor about how you feel and that would probs be a good first step to conquering your fears. Not saying I'm all great now becoz I'm not & I still have to deal with these skin problems, but what personally helped me was an antidepressant to give me just that little push, some sessions with a CBT therapist and I got a job (my parents made me lol). And the worst job possible for me at that point, a cashier. But it was very helpfull in that it made me face my fears.
In the meantime atleast try to do something constructive. You must be interested in something right?
Anyways I just thought I would give my piece.
