My daughter is biting herself or slapping herself in the face when she gets mad or upset! What should I do?

My little girl is 2 years old and so far, we have had very few behaviour problems with her. However, lately when I do have to tell her no or she can't have what she wants she bites herself or hits herself in the face. It started only when I said no or that she shouldn't do something but now it has gotten progressively worse. I am going to be taking her to her doctor soon but I wanted to know if anyone else has dealt with this and what I should do? How did you deal with it and how did you get it to stop?

Ignore it. It hurts to bite ones self or hit ones self, so she must be doing it because shes getting the reaction she likes. Humans are simple beings, we only do things that get us what we want.
