How to re-glue down small areas of carpet?

I need to glue down some areas of carpet that have "bubbled up" Something like a syrenge on a  calking tube would be ideal.

Does this exist? If so, where can I get it and if not what are your suggestuins?

The areas are not close to a seam and I'd don't want to have to pull up half a roon to re-glue it.

Update:

The carpet is currently glued down to concrete.

    You  can buy large syringes on line 'adhesive dispensers' - they are disposable as cleaning them is not very realistic. Fill them from a caulking tube. Rather depends why the original glue failed as to whether this will be very successful.  Adhesive is a standard installation method for contract carpeting.

    carpet isn't installed with glue at all.  it is stretched across the room with a knee kicker.  handyman with some carpet experience can do this
