I agree with Syphon that might help her understand that she is hurting you instead of playing a game with you. I know for my kids I would put them in a time out for 1 minute and then go back and talk to them. If they got out I would put them right back in. I think no matter what you try you have to be consistent.
When my son got older about 3 and would still bite when he was frustrated I told him..See my teeth they are bigger then yours and they will hurt if I bite you. The next time he bit his brother I bit him back. Nothing to hard just enough to hurt a little. After that he understood that he was really hurting people and he never did it again.
