Have pus acne on body. Black hard seed like substance coming out of the acne along with pus. Is it serious?

My acne on the side of the body recently popped. It was massive, around an inch large containing large amount of pus . Once i cleared the area of the pus, I discovered that there is a black hard seed like substance coming out of the acne as well as the pus. I would like to know the possible suggestions of what the black substance may be and if it is of any danger.

Black substance seems nothing but a follicular plug and is nothing to be worried about. It is the basic lesion of acne only
