I assume you're playng on the same computer? So this happened to me and basically, everytime you and your brother switch accounts and load L4D it will wipe the previous user's addons and load the current profile's addons.

One thing you can do, is when you've finished re-downloading your addons, is go to where your addons are located (usually in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons\workshop) and make a backup of them. Then, whenever you go to play after your brother, delete whatever's in the workshop folder and copy and paste your addons from your backup into the workshop folder. (Get your brother to make a backup of his too)


You could just move your addons from the "workshop" folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons\workshop) to the "addon" folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons) This makes sure the addons are always there and they shouldn't get deleted when you switch however they won't get updated.

I'm not sure if I've explained this very well but the second option is probably the easier. I hope I helped :)
