what does the start of a cold sore feel/look like

hi. l have some questions.

everyone says just before a cold sore forms a tingling sensation starts. what do they mean by that. is it just a slight tingling or a painful tingling. and at that time when you look at your lip do you see a small bump at that time, and is it a constant tingling that doesn't stop until the sore breaks open?

l am wondering because l was dumb and performed oral sex on an escort a while ago and sometime my lip will tingle very slightly then stop for a few minutes then tingle again. l usually wash my lip with warm water then put some Polysporin on the area and then the tingling goes away a little while later and that's it. l always think this is the start of a cold sore. does this sound like the way it happens or no. need some answers from people who have had them before thanks.
