SDL is a low-level access, it does not contain a function that will create a button. It does contain the function that allow to draw the text. But not a label as a GUI object.
This is possible to create a label or a button using SDL without a 3rd party framework. For a example, draw an image in a rectangle. When the application receives a mouse event, if the coordinates are in this rectangle, perform an action. This is the button. Make such reusable code in your program.
