Mark, the problem with dealing with stain yourself is you need to extract the stain not just spread it around, putting stuff on the top if it might make it worse.

try misting white vinagar on it and blotting with kitchen towel this might help

As Mike says you really need to extract it. If vinegar doesn't work try speaking nicely to a local carpet cleaner. Your profile doesn't say where your from, but I'm sure if you said some kind person might help.
