|Definitely sounds as if you have a mite problem. They will continue to be a persistant problem, until you get them medicated. The vet will swab your ears to make sure it is in fact mites, then either medicate the ears right then, or send you home w/ medication. The other animals in the house can get the mites too, so the sooner you get treated the better.
The nose issue, is most likely nothing to be concerned about. Some kitties just have dirty noses. Just have your parents clean it as usual. You can ask your vet about it when you go in.
As far as your brother is concerned. He's got flea allergy dermatitis. (At least that is what it sounds like). There are medicines that can help relieve him of the scabs and itchiness. One flea can cause these types of problems in cats that are allergic. Have your vet examine him too and get some relief from the fleas. Start Frontline or Advantage to help control the fleas on you and the rest of your family. You should also treat your house for fleas. I like Siphotrol Area Treatment spray. It is safe enough for animals to be in the house, just put them in another room for about a 1/2 while the product dries. Thoroughly vacuum, then throw away (outside) the contents of the vacuum. Make sure to get all area the animals come in contact w/. Closets, couches, etc. Spray the entire house. Then repeat ENTIRE process in 2 weeks.
