Internal genital warts and apple cider vinegar

I have been successfully using apple cider vinegar to treat external genital warts (after using Aldara with no noticeable improvements).  Now I have discovered internal genital warts.  Is it safe to use a tampon or cotton ball soaked in apple cider vinegar to treat them?  Also, what are the possible complications of internal genital warts (other than discomfort during intercourse)?
