Thats what you need for this effect. Costs of doom ~15 Dollar You will need Earwax, Makeup in fleshtone, red and black, a sponge, a brush, eyeshadow, fake blood. (if you get a gel, take this)
Step one: Where should my wound be? Mark it to know exactly where you need to apply the wax.
Step Two: Start to apply to wax by using small pieces at once to sculpt your bite. Be careful that you blend it soft to your skin, anything inside the wound you can cut off later.
Still Step Two: It should look like this. You also can add a brigde in the middle to get a bite wound where no flesh was torn out, which looks way more realistic. Experiment with it until you have a shape you like. You also can try to add a smooth surface of wax on your hand and bite in it, but make sure to use a foil to avoid that the wax wont stick to your teeth.
Yes, still Step Two: After your wound is applied, you can cut out the unnecessary bits from inside. Try to lift it up a little with your spatula, that adds to the wounds depth.
Step Three (phew nearly done): Gently tap the fleshtone makeup over your wound, make sure to spare out the edges, so that the highest parts of the wound look like the wax. I left a bit more parts free so that you can see it on the picture.
Final Step: Start with black and add red to it, mix the colors on your skin until you get the "infected" look,
easy if you follow the way the light should take, that simply means, where you want depth you need dark, where you want to make it look like flesh comes out of your wound, use a brighter color. I painted it very extreme so that you can see the difference, do me a favor and do it in more then just 2 layers as i did in this picture.
Final Final Step: Add Blood to your pleasure.

Ehem this tutorial here also doesnt need any latex, but thanks for the link.
Alternatives for latex are mostly easy, dont use it if you allergic to it. See also the FAQ discussion thread it would be a good topic for it.
In fact it does, what maybe could be interesting when you do makeup on ppl, suggest them to use skin care products the next days after they had applications or just alot of makeup on their face, it really dries out the skin, so a normal creme should work fine, but it prevents dry skin and akne. And esspecially when you use cheap stuff, invest that 2 dollars more into skin care creme, your actors will thank you for that.
Probably just the name brand, as long as it white and greasy it should be the same thing, oh and btw if you use conventional stage or water makeup, a slightly greased skin with that does help to get good colors.
